Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The surface of this antique trinket box is plain and encompassed with impressive applied gadroon decoration to the lower portion.
This silver jewellery box is fitted with a hallmarked hinged cover embellished with an embossed scene depicting a portrait of a female wearing a picture hat* over her long flowing hair, all on a matte background and encircled with scrolling leaf and floral ornamentation.
The cover of the box retains the original gilded interior.
This impressive box is fitted with a navy blue velvet lined interior.
The underside of the box bears the retailer's mark 'Walker & Hall, Sheffield, England', in addition to the registration number '6143'.
* A picture hat is one with a wide brim and it is used to frame the face. These hats were worn since the 18th century but were utilised in each of the decades of the 20th century.
