Copper Box with Four Enamelled Roundels by A.E. Jones*
Quite simply the most impressive A.E. Jones copper box we’ve managed to find.
Of riveted construction with a strap design by Anne Stubbs on the lid which is embellished with a blue-green enamel roundel.
Similar to our sold item 13277 (qv) but with a slightly different design detail around the central enamel, which is repeated in reduced size on the front and two end panels, each of which houses further enamels.
The lid overhangs the box all round, in typical Jones style, and is secured with two riveted hinges at the rear.
Inside, the box is cedar lined with a removable divider.
Dating from circa 1905, unmarked as is quite usual and in excellent polished condition, commensurate with age, and just a little scratching to the large enamel.
Measuring approximately 20 cm wide, a touch over 14 deep and marginally over 5 cm high.
