   FREE UK NEXT DAY DELIVERY. We Ship Worldwide. 

This is a stylish late vintage jewellery box with a stunning hallmarked sterling silver lid. It dates to 1992 and is in very good condition.

The Exterior

This box is made of solid wood and has a beautiful Mahogany stained finish.

The lid has a fully hallmarked solid silver top that has a stunning Victorian-inspired design! It features a raised oval centre with beautiful embossed Roses, surrounded by very pretty embossed bows and ribbons. All of this is beautifully framed with embossed swags. All of the embossment is in high relief and has a wonderful three-dimensional effect.

The box has quality stop hinges which hold the lid upright.

The box has a stylish shallow plinthed base and the bottom has a soft felt covering which will protect the surfaces of furniture.

The Interior

The interior has a single storage compartment. This has a blue soft velvet lining in the base and beautiful blue watered silk linings to the walls.

The inside of the lid has a sumptuous, plumply padded, high-quality watered silk panel.

The Manufacturer

This beautiful box was made by the renowned silversmiths firm, Carrs of Sheffield. This company was established in 1977 and they are still in production today. They produce high-quality decorative silverware. This particular box of theirs is from 1992 and is a retired design. It can no longer be purchased new. Their current smallest wood and silver box is £140 and much plainer than this one. (Price correct as of 25th November 2021).

The Silver Hallmark

The silver has a full Sheffield assay office hallmark with the date letter S for 1992. It also has the RC makers mark of Carr's of Sheffield Ltd.

This box is in very good condition. It has sound structure and very little wear.

There is some minor light wear to the velvet and silk which lines the interior compartment. The silk to the inside of the lid is still in superb condition.

There is minor light wear and a light water mark to the felt covering on the bottom of the box.

The silver has only minor light wear and light tarnish. It has been recently polished and will be polished again prior to the dispatch of the box.
