To me this is the highlight of the collection of sterling and tortoise items that I recently acquired. This all sterling silver box with a tortoise cover is smashing, as the British would say.
The box has the lion passant mark for sterling and an n date mark which I believe is for 1908. There is no city mark.
This small beauty has a 2 3/4" diameter. It stands on three sterling ball and claw feet. The box is lined in royal blue velvet and has a leather bottom.
The exquisite cover is made of a rich chocolate tortoise shell and trimmed in silver. The inlaid design is very elaborate as can be seen from the pictures. Truly a collector's dream.
The overall condition is quite good with all the shell and pique work intact. There are a few minor dents in the silver.
Referenced shipping cost is inclusive of signature delivery confirmation, as required by PayPal on all purchases exceeding $250.00.
Please Note: Tortoise shell cannot be shipped internationally, or to California.
Thanks for looking.
