Description

This is a superb and extensively decorated antique sterling silver biscuit box made by Charles Stuart Harris and hallmarked in London 1914.

It is a substantial piece using a heavy gauge of silver and it sits firmly on 4 feet. Ornate decoration overall and hallmarks are clearly struck. The box closes perfectly and is held by an ornate clasp. The handle to the top of the decorated lid is in the form of a coiled snake.

The box has overall gilding and the interior is quite stunning. The gilding to the outer body is very good with just some loss to the underside through overzealous cleaning and partial loss also to the raised circles on the lid.

This is a very fine piece from this well known silversmith and clearly has had very little, if any use.
