About

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Victorian English sterling silver tobacco box; an addition to our smoking related silverware collection. This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver tobacco box has a plain oval rounded form. The underside of this box is embellished with a bright cut engraved stemmed rose, floral and foliate design; this indicates the high quality of the piece, as typically the underside would remain unembellished. The upper portion of this antique silver tobacco box is encompassed with bright cut engraved scrolling leaf decoration, bead and tiered scalloped borders. This silver tobacco box retains the original sprung flush hinged hallmarked subtly convex cover, which opens by applying gentle pressure to each side. The cover is ornamented with impressive bright cut engraved scrolling leaf decoration, incorporating a lozenge shaped cartouche to the centre. The interior of the box retains the original gilding. Condition This antique tobacco box is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. The bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp. Full hallmarks and part hallmarks struck to the interior of the box are all very clear. Dimensions Length 7.7cm/3" Width 6.5cm/2.6" Height 2.5cm/1" Weight 2.4 troy ounces/74.3g Maker: Hilliard & Thomason Date: 1892 Origin: Birmingham, England Video: A video of this fine piece is available upon request. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of Victorian silverware. SKU A8386
