A rare item. A Victorian mechanical folding biscuit box with 3 segments. The gilded interior of each section has pretty pierced covers on spring retainers which can be opened. Silver plated all over. Deep engraved scroll decoration and a harebell flower border. Height 24 cms. Width 21 cms. Circa 1880. Marked underneath with silver plate stamps for maker G & L.
This pretty folding box is in very condition with no damage or restoration. The box movement works well. The silver plate is original and the gilding is bright. There is a bit of wear to the silver plate and a few spots underneath (please contact us if you would like this box to be plated).

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
Traditionally these boxes were kept by the fire to warm the biscuits. They usually have pretty pierced grills to keep the biscuits in place which can be lifted to access the contents.
