Condition


This silver biscuit box is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition; it can be determined this piece has seen little to no use.

The Swedish hallmarks struck to the underside of the body and sleeve of the cover are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.


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