Silver and Copper Box
Very pretty and nicely made wooden box encased with copper and embellished with applied silver decoration in the Art Nouveau style. The colour combination of the two contrasting metals works really well.
Probably originally a tea caddy as there are slots for a divider in the centre of the interior.
The box has a domed, hinged lid decorated with a blank cartouche and stands on four little bun feet. The front and back show a matching ornate silver design and the two ends have effective understated edge and corner detail.
Complete with a small key for locking the lid in place.
Marked on the underside with the initials HZJ but we are uanble to ascertain whose mark this is.
Possibly American, early 20th. century and measuring approximately 14.5 X 9 cm with a height of around 8 cm.
