William Comyns & Co Art Deco Silver Box
English Art Deco silver box with clean, sharp lines and a machined finish to the top of the lid, the sides and the ends.
Raised off a platform with a bevelled edge all round, and with a hinged lid showing the same bevel edge design detail, this is a box with a very Deco look.
The lid, with its central rectangular blank cartouche, has a full width hinge and opens and closes neatly.
Fitted internally with a lining that appears to be of lime wood, including two removeable dividers.
Both the main body of the box and its lid are hallmarked London 1922 and show the maker’s mark of Charles and Richard Comyns of William Comyns & Co. The original retailer’s name of C. Packer & Co is impressed into the silver where it wraps round the underside, and the embossed leather underlining bears their name and Regent Street, London address.
Measuring approximately 19.5 X 11 cm, with a height of a little under 6 cm.
