A wonderfully decorative antique silver large casket in the French 18th century style (at the time of Marie Antoinette) and features medallions, rams heads, swags and other classical motifs.

This beautiful box was originally made in Hanau, Germany especially for the English market by George Roth. It contains one set of marks attributed to George Roth and the other set are the English marks for 1903, London.

It still retains its original key.

The box would be lovely for jewellery, but could be used for tea and biscuits.

Dimensions: height 10.5 cm, length (at the widest across the base) 19 cm, width 12 cm; weight 23.15 troy oz.
