Description and Details 

We are delighted to offer this superb silver-gilt Georgian snuff box made by Edward Smith, Birmingham 1827.

The entire box is 'gilt' (gold plating on top of solid sterling silver) presenting a magnificent gold-tone and lustre that would grace a box collection or as an accenting piece in an all silver display.Most impressively, the top lid is profusely decorated with a medieval crusade battle scene. The details of each figure, their movements and weaponry are spectacularly captured and reanimated in silver form. 

In addition to the intricate detailing, the quality and solid gauge of silver used to create this object is equally impressive. Despite its compact (pocket) size, there is a substantial weight and gives a reassuring feel upon holding in hand. The sides of the box feature reeded lines and the base presents an engine-turned panel with a monogrammed cartouche (engraved as F.G.W.) The frame of the scene connects to a fantastic Acanthus scrolled thumb-piece which aids in the opening of the box. 

The interior of the box is also gilded providing continuity as well as protection from the contents inside tarnishing the silver. Though originally designed for snuff (powdered tobacco), today the box may be used for many creative purposes such as pill storage or as a wonderful object of interest in luxury interior decor. Whislt originally such boxes were made to store snuff (powdered tobacco), due to its beauty and size, it may also be used as a piece of intricate interior decor, practical storage for pills/medicine or as a small jewellery box. 

The box is fully hallmarked with the maker's mark, date mark, lion passant, Georgian head and the Birmingham assay mark.

    Condition

    Great Condition -  The snuff box is in great antique condition with no major damage, there are some very small dings on the interior panels which do not affect usage. The high points of the scene's surface are slightly worn. Please refer to the photographs to examine the condition in further detail. 

    Please note; the lid closes very securely and tightly almost to the extent it is sometimes a little challenging to open. We do recommend care upon opening as it can slip in hand if not careful. It may be easier to place your thumb sideways on the thumbpiece to open the box.
