ON HOLD FOR CHRISTINE:
A stunning English sterling silver jewelry box made by the well-known firm of William Comyns. A most unique piece, the jewelry box is in the shape of a grand piano decorated with the famous "Reynolds Angels" on the top and around the sides. William Comyns is an important silver firm founded in London in the year 1859. I have sold several Comyns jewelry boxes over the past year; each unique and unforgettable in design as this box.
