This is a Large Beautiful Edwardian Solid Silver & Tortoiseshell Oval Jewellery Box, this was crafted by the well renowned Silversmith William Comyns and was made in London in 1914 making it a 105 years old, this is a really Beautiful Solid Silver and Tortoiseshell Oval Jewellery Box, the outside of the Oval Box has a Smooth Finish to the Silver and still retains some Gilt to it, the Lid has a Raised Tortoise shell Lid that is framed within Solid Silver and has Beautiful studs all around, it does have an inscription on the lid that says Ethel, the Base has a Textured Brown Leather Finish, the front of the Box has a Large Push Button that releases the Lid and it has a strong Hinge and it closes with a nice clicking sound, when the Lid is opened it reveals Beautiful Colours to the Tortoiseshell when the light shines through it. The inside of the Lid also retains some of its Gilt, the inside of the Box has a Beautiful Cream Velvet Interior with a roped edging at the bottom, this is a Stunning Solid Silver and Tortoiseshell Jewellery Box that would have been owned by the Lady Ethel whos name is on the Lid, and i am sure would have a lot of Stories to tell if it could talk, the Silver is in Beautiful condition with only a crack on the Tortoiseshell and a coupe of small chips on the inside Lid of the Faux Tortoiseshell, but this doesnt detract from the beauty of this Antique, and is only mentioned for accuracy, this is a Large and Beautiful William Comyns Solid Silver and Tortoiseshell Jewellery Box and this would also make a perfect addition to any collection and my photos dont do it Justice
