Very fine oval silver Trinket Box hallmarked Chester 1910 by George Nathan & Ridley Hayes
A very fine sterling silver Trinket Box. Oval in shape, this lovely box has plain polished silver sides with a pretty protruding edge to the base and to the edge of the lid. The lid of the box has a lovely engine turned pattern with a circular empty cartouch in the very centre. the lid opens and closes perfectly.
Hallmarks are visible to one side of the box (slightly rubbed but still indentifiable - see images) for the Chester Assay Office with a date mark for 1910 and Lion Passant indicating the finest sterling silver. The date mark is for 1910, along with the silver maker's mark for George Nathan & Ridley Hayes. Pattial marks are also clearly visible on the side of the lid.
The proportions of the box are perfect.
A lovely item in great antique collector's condition ( there are a few very tiny dings on the base which we mention only for accuracy). Superior craftmanship is evident!
