Condition


This antique box is a very good gauge of silver, excellent quality and in excellent condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the box are clear in keeping with age and location.

The date letter surround, in conjunction with the registration date of the maker, determines the date of this piece between 1896-1915, with a strong probability of 1912 due to the letter shape.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this silver vesta box.
