This is a large, silver, jewellery or trinket box made by Henry Matthews, Vittoria Street, Birmingham, in 1916. Of scalloped rectangular form and with a moulded edge, it has smart, linear, engine-turned decoration to the lid, which has a vacant, circular, central cartouche. The lid fits well and opens to reveal the original blue silk and velvet interior. The hinge is strong and serviceable. The inside of the lid of the box is gilded. This piece is raised on four cabriole legs, with pretty fleur-de-lys terminals. Measuring 5.5 inches X 4 inches approx., this is a substantial, very attractive piece - the whole weighing 222 grams. There is no damage. It is in very good, antique condition. The hallmarks are rubbed, but legible.
Length: 14cm (5.5 inches)
Width: 10cm (Just under 4 inches)
Height: 5.8cm (2.25 inches)
Weight (including interior fabric) 222 grams
