Autumn Exhibition 2019

40. Silver Snuff Box
Canton. Circa 1830.
3 1/2 x 1 3/4 x 3/4'' ( 9 x 4.5 x 2 cm)

This unusual example displays a
strange mixture of neo classicism and
the traditional Chinese silver design.
The cover is decorated with a high
relief Chinese battle scene depicting
horsemen and foot soldiers set within
a raised foliate border - all in
contrast to the reeded sides with
central bands of engraved engine-
turning.
Stamp to interior of base:'P'
