An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Edwardian English sterling silver and enamel box made by Liberty & Co Ltd in the Arts and Crafts style; an addition to our diverse range of antique silver boxes and cases
This exceptional Edwardian sterling silver and enamel box has a plain rectangular form.
The body of this antique enameled box is plain and unembellished.
This antique silver box is fitted with the original domed hinged hallmarked cover ornamented with an exceptional and impressive hand painted enamel panel depicting a river bank scene incorporating a plain beam bridge with a simple handrail.
The enamel panel is encompassed with a paralleling scalloped border accented with rope twist ornamentation.
The chamfered portion of the cover is further ornamented with an iconic Arts and Crafts style applied lobed border.
The interior of the box retains the original gilding; this box can be refitted with a bespoke velvet jewellery box fitment upon request.
This impressive antique silver box was crafted by the collectable silversmith Liberty & Co Ltd.
Large Arts and Crafts style boxes with an enamel panel are uncommon and becoming increasingly rare to the market.
NOTE: The majority of such boxes have a wood lining to the interior; it is a sign of quality when boxes have gilded, unlined interiors in addition to a solid silver cover.
This antique silver and enamel box is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.
The enamel panel is in perfect condition.
The hallmarks struck to the rim of the body are all very clear.
Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Edwardian silverware.
