Vintage Elizabeth II Sterling Silver and Agate Box / Canister
Offered by AC Silver
The surface of the body is embellished with an impressive naturalistic texture.
The original hallmarked push fit cover features a fine and impressive polycrystalline quartz (agate)* amidst interlacing textured strands of sterling silver; this ornamentation represents the characteristics of tree growth rings.
The sides of the cover are plain and unembellished.
This impressive vintage box retains the original gilt interior.
The underside of the canister bears the signature of the prolific silversmith David Deakin to the centre of the hallmarks.
* The natural aesthetic depth of the agate is not truly reproduced in the images.
