This is a silverplate oval box marked on the base ‘EPNS’ with lift-off lid. The lid frames a sepia glazed transfer print of ‘Melrose Abbey’ which would infer that it is of Scottish origin. The condition is good for age with some rubbing of the silver surface on the base and a little on the sides, and the occasional tiny indentation. The image is in very good condition and the lid closes firmly. This would be a charming addition to a collection of small boxes or for use for its original purpose. Dimensions 6.5cm x 3.5cm x 2.4cm. Weight 48 grams.
