Description


This exceptional antique Edwardian sterling silver box has a rectangular form onto four Regency style feet.


The surface of this impressive casket style box is embellished with impressive panels of chased stylised floral and foliate decoration incorporating circular shaped vacant cartouches.


The box is fitted with an hinged hallmarked, push fit cover embellished with a subtly domed chased decorated panel incorporating an impressive swag design accented with floral sprays, all on a matte background.


The rim of the cover is ornamented with an impressive chased volute scrolling border incorporating an applied bead decorated thumbpiece to the anterior edge.


The interior of this impressive box retains the original gilding.

Condition

The chased decoration is all very sharp.
