An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Edwardian English sterling silver jewelry box; an addition to the ornamental silverware collection
This exceptional antique silver jewelry box, in sterling standard, has been modelled in the form of a dressing table.
The surface of this Edwardian jewelry box is plain and embellished with two applied sterling silver balls to the anterior convex arched surface, replicating the details of the draw handles.
The original hallmarked hinged cover is plain and parallels the shape of the body, opening to reveal the original segmented velvet interior.
The weighted base of this exceptional antique box retains the original leatherette covering to the underside.
The box is supported by four subtly tapering pillar style legs
Note: The majority of such boxes have a wood lining to the interior; it is a sign of quality when boxes have unlined interiors in addition to a solid silver cover.
This antique silver box is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.
The box has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition.
The original interior and leatherette covering have wear in keeping with age and use.
Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the body and part hallmarks to the interior of the cover are all very clear.
Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique Edwardian jewelry box silver.
