SOLD - German Silver Jewellery Box - Antique Circa 1900


This exceptional antique German silver jewellery box has a plain rectangular form.

The surface of the body is embellished with impressive embossed scenes depicting figures drinking and conversing whilst children play on the lawn, all in an outdoor tavern setting; this ornamentation was influenced by Flemish/Dutch genre artwork, such as pieces crafted in the late 17th century by David Teniers II.

This antique box is fitted with a solid silver hinged cover and embellished to the sides with an embossed scrolling leaf decorated border.

The surface of the cover of the box is ornamented with a large panel depicting figures on a swing to the background with characters lounging and playing skittles to the foreground.

The interior of this fine jewellery box is fitted with a bespoke navy blue velvet fitment, with a central well and a lift out compartment.

NOTE: The majority of such boxes have a wood lining; a sign of quality when boxes are unlined and made of solid silver.


This antique silver jewellery box is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The embossed decoration is very sharp.

The Hanau hallmarks to the underside of the box are all very clear.

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