An exceptional, fine and impressive antique George IV English 18 carat yellow gold snuff box; an addition to our 19th century collection
This exceptional antique 19th century English 18ct yellow gold snuff box has a rectangular form with rounded corners.
The body of this antique gold snuff box is embellished with panels of impressive engine turned decoration framed with plain borders.
This impressive box is fitted with a hinged hallmarked cover ornamented with a continuation of the decoration to the body
The anterior surface of the cover features an applied incurved thumbpiece.
The engine turned decoration to the cover incorporates a vacant rectangular cartouche to the centre.
NOTE: Engine turned decoration was first used in the 16th century on soft materials such as wood and ivory, until the 18th century when it was adopted for soft metals such as gold and silver.
This antique gold snuff box is an exceptional gauge of gold, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. The engine turned decoration is all very crisp; it can be determined this piece has seen little to no use. The British hallmarks to the interior of the body and cover are very clear.
