This antique silver box is fitted with the original domed hinged hallmarked cover ornamented with an exceptional and impressive hand painted enamel panel depicting a river bank scene incorporating a plain beam bridge with a simple handrail.
The enamel panel is encompassed with a paralleling scalloped border accented with rope twist ornamentation.
The chamfered portion of the cover is further ornamented with an iconic Arts and Crafts style applied lobed border.

Large Arts and Crafts style boxes with an enamel panel are uncommon and becoming increasingly rare to the market.
NOTE: The majority of such boxes have a wood lining to the interior; it is a sign of quality when boxes have gilded, unlined interiors in addition to a solid silver cover.
