Amazing Persian solid silver box. High quality, highly detailed chased and engraved lid with birds and flowers on a textured ground. The excellent quality chasing and repousse is evident when looking at the inside of the lid. The sides of the box also decorated.
The underside is plain with four feet, one in each corner. Hinged along the longest side. There are stamped marks on the inside base of the box, please see photos. I think the smaller mark may be for 84 zolotniks or 875 grade silver.
A beautiful box, in very good condition commensurate with age which I think is first half of 20th Century. Size: 18cm long x 9.5cm wide x 3cm high. Ive owned this beautiful box for about 16 years but time for clear out! Thank you for looking, any questions please ask.
