Description and Details
We are delighted to be able to offer this magnificent silver-gilt snuff box, made by silversmith Charles Rawlings & William Summers in London, 1837.
The box presents a relatively sleek exterior design with contoured circular sides on each end which magnificently reflects its gilded colour under lighting.
Fully gilded both exterior and interior-wise the box exhibits a lustrous and indulging colour and quality ideal for adding a hint of gold in one's collection.
Another noteworthy point is the intricate and profusely hand-engraved motifs of acanthus scrolls on the exterior that is carefully embellished to a very high standard.
The centre of the lid presents a cartouche with a crest in the form of a hand holding a boar's head.
The box is fully hallmarked with the maker's mark, date mark (1837), silver lion, Georgian head and the London assay mark.
A remarkable piece of collectable silverware from the Georgian/Victorian period remaining in excellent condition.
