Hammered Silver Box
Rectangular evenly hammered silver box with simple but elegant lines made by William Comyns & Sons, then of Beak Street in London and hallmarked for 1903.
With curved edges to the lid but otherwise ‘straight up and down’ in style, the hammered finish giving a real Arts & Crafts look.
The hinge runs the full length of the box and there is a plain, circular blank cartouche in the centre of the lid which, when opened reveals a gilded underside.
The interior is lined with cedar and incorporates two movable spacers. It is lined on the underside with black leather.
Almost certainly originally designed as a cigarette or cheroot box but equally useful for small trinkets of any kind, the box measures 19.5 X 9 cm and is 5.5 cm high overall.
