Magnificent, fine and impressive antique George IV English sterling silver gilt table snuff box; an addition to our antique box collection. This magnificent antique George IV sterling silver gilt table snuff box has an oval rounded form. The body of this impressive antique snuff box is embellished with a band of flat engraved floral and foliate motifs. This exceptional example of antique silverware is fitted with a hinged hallmarked cover encompassed with a thread decorated border to the rim. The upper plateau of the cast cover is embellished with an exceptional scene depicting a battle scene, with soldiers on horseback, all in high relief. The underside of this antique box bears further impressive flat engraved floral and foliate decoration, on a matte background.
