Edwardian English Sterling Silver Pique Work and Tortoise Shell Dresser Box
This is a gorgeous sterling silver dresser box, made by William Comyns in London, circa 1907. It has a pleasing shape and is a good size for holding vanity items such as hair pins or earrings. The lid is made of tortoise shell, which shows a lovely mottled brown and yellow color when held up to the light. It is topped with a beautiful sterling pique work design, featuring an ornate wheel in the center framed by swags, bows, and what appears to be two lutes. This piece is in excellent condition and the lid fits very tightly.
It measures 3.5" x 2.5" and weighs 129.5 grams. Both the lid and the bottom of the box bear the marks for Sterling (lion), London (lion's head), 1907 (m), and William Comyns (w.c.).
