Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this huge solid silver snuff box made by silversmith Thomas Johnson of London in 1869.
Made during the Victorian era, this box has a highly embellished exterior design with multiple motifs of floral and foliate hand-engravings and a wonderful chased border on the lid.
The highlighting feature of this snuff box is unquestionably its immense scale and presence it presents as a whole. Weighing a sturdy 307grams/10.8oz this box most certainly has an unusually large and bold appearance with its quality and aesthetic to match its impressiveness.
The interior of the box is fully gilt which greatly contrasts the exterior silver colour and the large volume allows for the lustrous and indulging gold tone to shine through exquisitely.
In addition to the large volume and size, the box's geometric and aesthetic design is superb with a curved and arched midsection of sides which leads to its wider flared base and lid. Such design significantly accentuates the box's size and upon holding in hand becomes ever more apparent.
Due to its accomodating size and capacity, this box would be ideal for multiple purposes including a magnificent table display, storage of small items or for a very generous amount of stuff to be stored in.
The box is fully hallmarked with English marks on the lid and base with matching marks.
An ideal and superb box for uncompromising collectors or for those who wish to add a magnificent piece of Victorian silverware as part of a collection or interior display.
