A SMALL COLLECTION OF ANTIQUE SILVER AND OBJECTS OF VERTU

enamel box (or casket)


English silver cigarette box or casket this is a gilt metal (maybe brass) cylindrical box or casket with a colourful cloisonne enamel decoration on a ruby champleve background.
The box stands on three small ball feet and is lined with crimson velvet.
The vacant cover is decorated with a large cloisonne angelfish, while six smaller fishes and a shield shape crest with three sailing vessels are all around the sides of the box.
The box is unmarked and I'm unable to locate where and when it was manufactured. The enamel decoration is of high quality and suggests China or Asian origin.
Suggestions on the origin of the box or of the crest would be greatly appreciated. You may email to giorgio.

This item is not for sale, but most of my pieces were bought through the Internet. On the right bar of this page there are some links to silver and antique dealers websites
