The body of this antique box is embellished with panels of engined turned and tooled decoration, incorporating circular and floral motifs.


Each incurved cornered panel is encompassed with applied simplified foliate festoon and column style borders, accented with tri-coloured gold highlights.

The upper plateau of the cover incorporates an elongated oval panel, reflecting the same tooled and engine turned decoration as that to the body; the underside of the box bears the same design as the cover.


This gold box has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 20 carat gold.
