A rare antique silver box of hexagonal form with a folding strapwork catch; the hinged lid having a large drop handle supported by ball finials. Of plain form and heavy gauge silver, this unusual box is extremely heavy. The interior pull out tray has two hinged lids enclosing six compartments. Possibly a spice box, although spice boxes of this period usually had a double centrally hinged lid, could also be used for cash or jewellery.
Weight 1268 grams, 40.7 troy ounces.
Height 9.5cm. Top measures 17 x 12cm.
Maker Edward Vincent.
The silver box is in very good condition. The hinges and catches all work well. Stamped with English silver hallmarks:
- Fully stamped underneath the box, each of the two folding flaps, underneath the pull out tray.
- Stamped inside the box lid with the lion and maker’s mark.
- Stamped under the folding catch with the lion mark. Handle unmarked
