EDWARDIAN SOLID SILVER SNUFF BOX ADIE & LOVEKIN LTD BIRMINGHAM 1906
DESCRIPTION AND DETAILS
We are pleased to offer this intricately designed silver snuff box made by silversmith Adie & Lovekin Ltd in Birmingham 1906.
The exterior lid features fully embellished acanthus motifs which have been hand engraved very finely, resulting in an intricate and aesthetically pleasing beautiful design.
The Cartouche in the centre of the lid has been monogrammed with the initials RG.
The hinge and closure of the lid is functioning perfectly with a smooth and tight closure.
The box has a fully gilt interior that pleasantly contrast the brilliant silver tone on the exterior in addition to providing a layer of protection from the silver reacting with the contents inside the box.
The quality of the craftsmanship is superb, this would have once belonged to a very wealthy Edwardian family and sat pride of place on their table, this was many many years ago when times were so very different, if this snuff box could talk I can just imagine what fascinating stories it could tell, this snuff box is so very tactile and once held it has the most wonderful feel. This will add something very special to any collection.
The box is fully hallmarked with clear markings on both the base and lid of the box.
