Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The shaped body of this large silver jewellery box is plain and unembellished.
The Edwardian trinket/jewellery box is fitted with a hallmarked hinged serpentine shaped solid silver cover encompassed with an applied tied reed decorated border.
The centre of the cover is embellished with an embossed design depicting two wandering putti* bordered with large floral and foliate branches.
This impressive box is supported by four impressive applied legs embellished with scrolling leaf and floral ornamentation.
The box is fitted with a navy blue velvet lined interior.
The interior of the cover features the original gilding.
The base is weighted, as to be expected, and retains the original leatherette to the underside.
* In art and culture, a putto (plural: putti) is a chubby male child, usually nude and occasionally bearing wings.
Not measurable due to the weighted base.
