This exceptional antique George V sterling silver jewellery box has a plain rectangular form.
The surface of this 1930s silver jewellery box is unembellished, apart from the feature hallmarks.
The original hallmarked hinged cover opens to reveal the original gilded interior; this has worn with age in a sympathetic fashion to an aesthetically pleasing mellow colour.
The body of this fine jewellery box is fitted with a cedar wood and bespoke navy blue velvet lined interior, which features a central well incorporating an integrated ring holder to one side.
This antique box has a weighted base and retains the original leatherette lining to the underside.
