This exceptional antique sterling silver box has a plain oval form.

The sides of the body are embellished with an exceptional band of bright cut engraved stylised urn decoration amidst a geometric zig zag border, accented with leaf motifs and horizontal pales; this ornamentation continues to the sides of the cover.

The impressive hinged cover is embellished with blue enamel bordered lozenge pattern, alternating with green and red enamel quatrefoil motifs.

This lozenge ornamentation incorporates an exceptional blue enamel cartouche ornamented with two tied cornucopia below a winged insect; a cornucopia is also known as the 'horn of plenty', which is reflected with the abundance of fruit within the design.

The cover is further embellished with a green enamel border incorporating a husk festoon design accented with white enamel petal designs to each incurve.

The underside of the box is plain and unembellished.

This impressive antique silver and enamel box retains the original gilded interior.

By virtue of its size this versatile box could be used for a multitude of functions, such as a pill box, table snuff box or trinket box.
