Object Description

This fine large George II silver gilt cartouche shaped portrait box was made C1740 and is unmarked, it measures 3 inches in length by 2.5 inches wide and is 1 3/8 inches deep, to the inside there is a glass covered portrait of 2 ladies in period dress with a kneeling man holding her hand and a further lady above, some of the paint is missing and there are 2 chips in the glass but to the underside so not distracting, the lid is embossed with 2 gentlemen in period clothes inside a building with arches amongst scrolls and shells, a cornucopia with large acanthus leaf above, the detailing still quite defined, there is some wear to the gilt on the high points but nothing major or distracting and to the underside the base is plain again with wear to the gilding, a lovely box larger than the norm in super condition.
