A fabulous example of an antique sterling silver jewellery or trinket box, a good large example with a lid measuring 3 7/8" x 3 1/8" and standing 2" tall. The box stands on four most attractive legs and is hallmarked for London 1914, a true antique example, over 100 years old. The makers initials are also present for the silversmith, Charles Boyton and Sons Ltd.
The lid is the star of the show, inset with a wonderful antique piece of tortoiseshell exquisitely inlaid with pretty silver pique inlay. The raised border is as pretty as a picture with a ribbon and bow design.
The lid fits well and once opened reveals a beautifully lined interior with the original deep amethyst coloured silk lining.
