Description

An outstanding quality Georgian silver mourning toothpick box, the lid with a glazed panel containing woven hair. Rectangular with canted corners and the lid with a flush mounted hinge opening to reveal the original velvet lining and mirror. The box is in the unmistakable style of the renowned small-workers of the period Thomas Phipps and Edward Robinson, with a raying design on the lid and bright-cut floral and neo-classical motif decoration, and has been fully hallmarked for London c1790. The clear impression of the hallmarks can be seen on the inside of the box beneath the velvet, see photo. The exterior hallmark stamps have been lost in the decoration, see last but one photo. Fabulous quality and condition, a collector’s gem.
Condition: In amazing antique condition with no damage and virtually no wear, the bright-cutting really crisp. The original Georgian mirror with the silvering partially degraded. The hallmarks as discussed above lost in decoration, but clear impression of a full set of George III hallmarks can be seen from the inside, underneath the velvet.
Maker: Probably Phipps & Robinson London c1790
Dimensions: 12 x 82 x 24. 36g
