Silver and tortoiseshell piqué jewellery box
William Comyns - London, 1912
This rectangular box is of a large size and was made by the maestro of 19th and early 20th century piqué, William Comyns. It has the added luxury of solid panels of tortoiseshell for sides and a delicate silver frame poised in cabriole legs. The box was made in London in 1912 and it’s classic swags and bows motif is the epitome of late Edwardian elegance.
The lining is original.
