Description

An excellent early Victorian silver snuff box by George Unite, Birmingham, 1853. This is the best example of this type that I have ever had. It has fine, engine-turned, all-over scroll and floral decoration and a well-gilded interior. There is no engraving to the central cartouche and there never has been. The hallmarks inside are noticeably clear. This item has had little, if any, use. The hinge is strong and works very well. The lid closes flush. Nothing is loose. There is no damage to this piece, no dints, losses, or restoration. Made from a good gauge of silver, it weighs 86 grams.
Width: 8.7cm (Just under 3.5 inches)
Depth: 5.9cm (Just under 2 inches)
Height: 1.3cm (About half an inch)
Weight: 86 grams
