A pair of early English antique sterling silver boxes with lift off lids. Plain octagonal form. The tops have a hand engraved armorial within plumage feathers, typical of the Charles II/James II period. These unusual miniature toilet jars are very charming. Superb antique colour. At this date boxes of this type would have originally been part of an extensive toilet service. Total weight 148 grams, 4.7 troy ounces. Height 6cm. Diameter of lid 3.8cm. Makers mark only for Anthony Nelme. Circa 1690.
Very good, particularly considering the age. No damage or repairs. Fine antique patina. The lid engraving still has good relief. Both bases and tops are stamped underneath with the makers mark only. One of the boxes has a small dent underneath.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
