Material: .800 silver
Estimated Period: late 19th/early 20th century

This beautiful box has a Repoussé floral design around the edge, a hand chased design to its base and the lid has two oval shapes which have a thin cobalt blue coloured glass insert (which I believe can be removed and used for photos), in the top centre of the lid there is a bird with two crossed torches and a ribbon and three more floral designs. There are hallmarks on either side of the hinge area at the back of the box which are very tiny and impossible for me to work out, there is the Boar Head mark on the inside edge of the box. A very unusual and beautiful collectible.
