Product Description

A beautiful silver snuff box dating from the early Victorian period designed and made by the Birmingham silversmith Edward Smith in 1843.

The box is a very rare design in relief featuring a reclining female figure with a deer set in a woodland scene with lovely incised decoration on the sides and undersides .There is very little wear to the outer decoration , the design is clear and defined .The inside of the snuff box shows no sign of use or polish over the years so is very clean with the hallmarks clearly visible. The box in fact looks like it may never have been used for its purpose.

Antique silver snuff boxes are usually associated with Sheffield, England where silver-plating technologies were perfected on these diminutive containers in the late 18th century. By the early 19th Century, Birmingham, England had developed a blossoming silver industry, where craftsman such as Edward Smith, Samuel Pemberton and Nathaniel Mills, produced oblong containers with images of castles and abbeys , figurine & hunting scenes on their sides and top.
