Questions about this piece?


This elegant collection of silver boxes was superbly crafted in the 20th century.

All boxes are of a refined design, most with a smooth finish apart from the lids. The lids are magnificently adorned with symmetrical engine turned motifs, adding a touch of character to each piece. The central rectangular panel on each hinged lid is framed with a delicate border of a different engine turned design. The largest box includes a rectangular cartouche on which a dedication or one’s initials can be engraved.

Some boxes include wooden lining, which beautifully stands out against the shining silver. The largest box is lined with deep brown wood with a shiny finish, only covering the storage compartment. The medium sized box is too lined with wood but with a matt finish. It is lined throughout, including both the lid and storage compartment. The wood lining is cleverly divided into two enabling the user to store various types of treasures.

Two boxes feature markings. The largest box is stamped with ‘800’ alongside an indistinct mark. The medium sized box includes several markings for the maker (‘SJR’ standing for S J Rose & Son), the location (London), the purity of silver (925) and the date code for 1973.

Showcasing English silver design, this collection would make a magnificent present for one’s special occasion.
