Makers mark only for Anthony Nelme.

Circa 1690.

Sterling silver.

Condition

Very good, particularly considering the age. No damage. Fine antique patina. The lid engraving still has good relief. Both bases and tops are stamped underneath with the makers mark only. One of the boxes has a small dent underneath. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age.
