Old very beautiful tobacco, cigarette or other box in solid silver and vermeil, around 1820. This beautiful and rare box or tabatière, of period restoration charles x, is in good condition of conservation with some minimal traces of time. It opens and closes perfectly.
The decor is a little blurred, especially below (photo 8). An old punch, a facial mask punch and a master goldsmith punch are present but a little erased (photos 9 and 10). It may also be noted that there are 2 boar hoarse punches that were later charged.
Originally, this beautiful box was entirely in vermeil (fine solid gold layer on solid silver). There are still some traces of this gilding outside, but it has largely disappeared.
The interior has retained its golden layer. Size: 8.3 x 4.9 cm. Fast, neat and very secure shipping, see my ratings. This item is in the category "art, antiques\ objects of xixe and before".
