This charming box is in very good condition. The silver marks are clear. The glass has a few very small chips and minor frits as can be expected from a piece of glass this age.

Maker Information

Maker: Charles Boynton

This business was founded by Charles Boyton, apprenticed in 1807 to William Seaman, his first hallmark 1825 (free in 1827). The workshop was active at 12 Europia Place, moving in 1830 to Wellington Street, St. Luke's. From c.1849 the firm operated at Northampton Square, Clerkenwell (c. 1849-1904) under the management of Charles Boyton II (son of Charles, died 1899) and Charles Holman Boyton (grandson, died 1904). In 1894 the business became Charles Boyton & Son and in 1919 Charles Boyton & Son Ltd. The firm encountered economic difficulties and in 1933 Charles Boyton & Son Ltd was created (active at Wardour Street from 1936 until 1977). In 1934 Charles Boyton (III) left the firm and opened his own business at 114 Marylebone Lane with retail premises at 98 Wigmore Street. His production in Art Deco style was engraved with a facsimile of his signature. The activity closed after 1948.
