Favourite Item
A Victorian Pill or Snuffbox, London 1847, Charles Rawlings and William Summer. The interior of the box is gilt with a second, air-tight, lid; the exterior is engraved with scrolling foliate decoration and a plain asymmetrical cartouche on the lid [later engraved 30th April 1886] and an oval vignette on the base with a seated lady holding a basket of flowers in a landscape.
Presumably made to fit into a travelling case, and to match a vinaigrette of the same style, such double-lidded boxes are unusual in Victorian English silver.
Good.A very slight spring to lid.
