Description


This exceptional German silver, casket style box has a rectangular shaped form supported by four scrolling feet.


The surface of the body has a matte textured finish accented with a decorative scalloped claw bordered 'window'.


Each side of the body of this antique box is embellished with an applied enamel panel encompassed with floral medallions accented with emanating leaf sprays incorporating a single flower head design to each corner.


The central medallions and floral heads are highlighted with gilded details.


Each exceptional enamel panel depicts a variety of scenes incorporating figures celebrating, dancing and lounging amidst a rural setting; the continuous frieze of figures relates to a folklore or tale.


This antique silver box is fitted with the original hinged cover embellished with further applied and enamel ornamentation, all framed with a plain border.


The interior of the box retains the original gilding; this box can be refitted with a bespoke velvet jewellery box fitment upon request.


Each corner of this impressive antique German box if fitted with an applied opposing scroll decorated leg, accented with additional scroll designs in addition to a figural head to the upper portion.


The hallmarks struck to the underside and rim of this magnificent piece include:

Maker's marks: WH (untraced)

Assay scrape: Zickzack line (Tremolierstrich)

Hanau marks: Untraced*


* Hanau pseudo-marks were not registered with an administrative office and no records exist to check them against determining an attributed identification to be a comparison or probability.


NOTE: The majority of such boxes have a wood lining to the interior; it is a sign of quality when boxes have gilded, unlined interiors in addition to a solid silver cover.
