This exceptional contemporary Italian sterling silver biscuit box has a rounded triangular, shell shaped body supported by three hoof feet, all in the classic English Victorian style.

The sterling silver frame of this triple opening box is fitted with impressive cast and applied putto characters surmounting scrolling leaf decorated supports.

The frame of the box is embellished with applied tied reed decoration accented with elevating scrolling leaf designs and terminating with an exceptional putto decorated finial, holding in his hand a glass.

This contemporary biscuit box retains the original three hinged compartments, each fitted with a hallmarked mystical fish/dolphin decorated handle to facilitate opening.
