Sterling Silver Gilt Table Snuff Box by Edward Farrell - Antique George IV


A magnificent, fine and impressive antique George IV English sterling silver gilt table snuff box; an addition to our antique box collection

SKU C8650

This magnificent antique George IV sterling silver gilt table snuff box has an oval rounded form.

The body of this impressive antique snuff box is embellished with a band of flat engraved floral and foliate motifs.

This exceptional example of antique silverware is fitted with a hinged hallmarked cover encompassed with a thread decorated border to the rim.

The upper plateau of the cast cover is embellished with an exceptional scene depicting a battle scene, with soldiers on horseback, all in high relief.

The underside of this antique box bears further impressive flat engraved floral and foliate decoration, on a matte background.

This exceptional 19th century snuff box retains the original gilding; this has diminished with age in a sympathetic fashion to an aesthetically pleasing mellow colour.

This magnificent gold coloured snuff box, crafted by the renowned London small worker silversmith Edward Farrell, is the finest of its type you could hope to acquire.

Date: 1824

This antique sterling silver snuff box is a superior gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition; as to be expected of this renowned maker.

The decoration is all very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the box and part hallmarks to the cover are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the superior gauge of silver.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of antique English silverware.
