Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this Victorian solid silver box made by the famous Asprey of Bond St in 1862.The box features a slightly unusual tall design in comparison to normal snuff/pillboxes.
The top lid features an engine-turned design with a very good hinge that conjoins to the base.
The base of the box has a plain mirror-like finish to the exterior.
The interior of the box is fully gilt with a rich gold tone. Some slight pitting/dark tarnishing is present on the edges.
Overall a good quality box made by Asprey, ideal for display or practical usage as a snuff box or pill case.
