This exceptional antique George V sterling silver jewellery box has a rounded serpentine shaped form.
The surface of the body and sides of the cover are plain and unembellished.
This large antique jewellery box is fitted with a hallmarked hinged cover incorporating an impressive tortoiseshell panel ornamented with exceptional silver piqué work depicting intertwined scrolling brackets supporting simplified floral garlands.
This antique tortoiseshell box is supported by pierced decorated bracket style feet, each with scrolling leaf decorated borders with a central floral motif, reflecting the same style as the decoration to the cover.
The box is fitted with the original red velvet lined interior.
The base is weighted, as to be expected, and retains the original leatherette to the underside.
