Description

A lovely antique Victorian silver chest. We date this chest to the mid 19th century.
The chest comprises of a large rear hinged lidded brass bound box mounted on ball castors.
The brass bound rear hinged lid is fitted with a lock (key supplied) and has internal brass stays. There is an unengraved brass shield to the top centre of the lid.
The chest is fitted with a pair of beautifully twisted brass handles at each side with brass bindings on the edges.
The internal silver storage sections have been removed at some time in the past and red felt has been added inside the lid.
There is a brass plaque inside the chest for ‘Elkington & Co, Silversmiths, 22 Regent Street, London’.
The brass lock is stamped ‘Hobbs & Co, London’.
The chest has a height of 29.5" (75cm), with a width of 33" (84cm) and a depth of 24.5" (62cm).
This lovely chest remains in very good solid condition with only minor surface markings commensurate with age and usage. There is a tiny age split to the top of the lid and a small minor lift to the left hand side of the lid as can be seen in the pictures.
This remains a very stylish and functional chest which would function well as a toy storage box linen chest etc. It will continue to provide good service for many years to come.
