Description


This fine antique Edwardian sterling silver commemorative box has a plain rectangular form with rounded corners.


The subtly domed hinged cover of the box retains the original transfer depicting portraits of King Edward VII and Alexandra of Denmark in addition to the coat of arms of Leeds.


The cover is further ornamented with the presentation details ‘7th July 1908, Wilfred L Hepton Lord Mayor, Souvenir of the visit to Leeds, of the King and Queen. Presented by the Lord Mayor’.


The underside of the Edwardian box is embellished with the original engraved inscription ‘Rowntree & Co Ltd, Cocoa & Chocolate Makers. York’.


The decoration to the underside of the box includes the coat of arms of the United Kingdom with ‘By appointment to H.M the King’, and the heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales above ‘By appointment of HRH the Prince of Wales’.


The sides of the box are plain and unembellished.

Condition


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

There is minor loss to the transfer to the cover, but this remains in excellent condition in keeping with age.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the box are all very clear.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of this piece of Edwardian silverware.
