A continental silver filigree decorative flower box
Continental, Early 20th Century
10cm high x 11cm wide x 7cm deep.
This delicate and charming piece, crafted from silver filigree, is as much a jewel in its own right as it is a box for storage. With intricately wound and interlaced silver wires and beads, the box is constructed such that all the walls consist of ornate floral panels, which curve outwards lower down towards the base. The box is mounted upon four feet, each of which is similarly constructed. With silver bands and beams encasing the structure, it is a delightful and desirable miniature silver gem.
