This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver sugar box has been realistically modelled in the form of a pheasant*.

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.
