This fine antique Edwardian sterling silver commemorative box has a plain rectangular form with rounded corners.

The subtly domed hinged cover of the box retains the original transfer depicting portraits of King Edward VII and Alexandra of Denmark in addition to the coat of arms of Leeds.

The cover is further ornamented with the presentation details ‘7th July 1908, Wilfred L Hepton Lord Mayor, Souvenir of the visit to Leeds, of the King and Queen. Presented by the Lord Mayor’.

The underside of the box is embellished with the original engraved inscription ‘Rowntree & Co Ltd, Cocoa & Chocolate Makers. York’.

The decoration to the underside of the box includes the coat of arms of the United Kingdom with ‘By appointment to H.M the King’, and the heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales above ‘By appointment of HRH the Prince of Wales’.
