This antique sugar box is embellished with embossed and chased decoration reproducing the details of the bird's plumage and anatomical features.
The upper portion of the hallmarked push fit neck/head allows access to the original hallmarked pierced decorated cover.
The hallmarks struck to the sleeve of the body and surface of the neck include:
Importer's mark: S.N (Soloman Nathan Nyburg)
Silver quality/purity mark: 930**, Lion passant (sterling, 925/1000)
Import date mark: R (1892)
Assay mark: Leopard head (London, England)
Additional mark: F (foreign manufacture mark)
* The bird has been determined as a pheasant due to the characteristics of the body and distiguishable features of a male Himalayan monal pheasant's crest.
** The country of origin hallmarked this item with the standard mark 930 and once imported into Britain the silver purity was tested and hallmarks struck reaffirming the silver is a minimum of sterling standard.
Width of body 9cm/3.5"
Height to top of crest feathers 20cm/7.9"
10 troy ounces/311g
