Description

London 1837 - Charled Rawlings and William Summers.
This is one of those pieces that you've got to feel to really appreciate! The lava is cool and smooth to the touch. The inlaid volcano is beautifully done. The lava ( dark from Mount Etna ) was obviously brought back from a tour of Italy and given to silversmiths Rawlings and Summers who added the thick and heavy silver gilt mounts which transformed it into this unique box. The lid fits tightly and perfectly and the hallmarks are crisp and clear - it is in perfect condition. It weighs 4.37 ounces.
We offer free Royal Mail next day delivery within the UK.
