19th Century Engine Turned Hidden Hinge Secret Silver Box


This is a great little object, a silver box with a hidden lid that closes flush with its base. It is made by Frederick Wright for Percy Edwards, in London, circa 1898. For its time it is quite a unique find. It has a hidden hinge lid that makes the design very futuristic looking; it has an exterior that is entirely engine turned texture, forming a seamless pattern up to the center armorial crest, a deer head. It has a lovely gilt interior in great condition, which shines and contrasts when opened. The circular form of the box, slightly flattened, fits well in a hand, and makes it a great portable object, a depository for special personal items. It weighs 3 ozt, 2 dwt and measures 3 1/2 inches at its diameter. It has makers mark, silver mark and date all on the inside of the box. Makes a great gift.
