Object Description

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Edwardian English sterling silver jewellery box; an addition to the ornamental silverware collection

This exceptional antique silver jewellery box, in sterling standard, has been modelled in the form of a dressing table.

The surface of this Edwardian jewellery 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.
