Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this superb Georgian solid silver table snuff box made in Birmingham in 1829 with the marks of Thomas Shaw.This table snuff box features a delightful array of classically Georgian decorations and aesthetics found on fine table boxes of this period.
The top lid features an ornate applied cast and chased floral border that encompasses the central cartouche which has been engraved with a presentation engraving. The details on the flowers, foliate across and joined thumbpiece make it a delight to view from all angles. Furthermore, the sides and base of the box feature a rich engine-turned motif from edge to edge which remains very crisp. The interior of the box presents a wonderful glossy silver gilt surface which not only serves as an aesthetic contrast to the exterior but provides protection from the contents inside tarnishing the silver. Whilst this box would make for a nice contrasting piece in a snuff box collection, in the modern day, such boxes could also be used practically to store small items, mints and pills in addition to the traditional snuff (tobacco) that would have been stored within. A full set of English hallmarks is present on the interior lid and base of the box.
