For you to consider is a large vintage silver plated decorative covered keepsake box. Ideal for placement on a sideboard, console, or cocktail table, this is an elegant piece that's substantial in size.
Standing on a beaded and stepped base, the flared box is decorated with a foliate swag garland on both the front and back with an English scrolled handle on each side. The beaded and domed cover is topped with a pineapple finial centered on an elaborate foliate cartouche. The rectangular box stands approximately 9 inches in height to the finial, measures 9 inches in length from handle to handle, and is 5.5 inches wide from front to back. In overall good-very good condition, there are a few random and tiny dings to the box that aren't immediately noticeable or distracting. These are virtually impossible to capture in photos.
These areas will likely fade over time with polishing and gentle persistence. The interior of the box shows moderate staining and wear. The box is free of major dents, plate loss, prior repairs, or other compromising imperfections. The exterior silver plating is intact and easily polishes to a clear and brilliant luster. The phrase "not for food use" is engraved on the bottom of the base; no identifying hallmark was found.
Wear is commensurate with age and history of use, so please carefully regard all photos as they are a descriptive part of the listing. An impressive and classic home decor statement piece that presents well and will enhance any room in which it's placed. We welcome your questions and are delighted to answer!
