Condition


This antique Victorian jewellery casket is an exceptional gauge of silver for its type, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The original satin interior of the casket and fabric lining to the underside have discolouration in keeping with age and use.

The embossed decoration is all very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the rim of the body and part hallmarks to the cover have wear in keeping with age and location, but remain legible.


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