Description This box is made from high gauge sterling silver.  It is of plain, cylindrical form with a pull-off lid.  This would make a perfect box for holding a ring, cufflinks or trinkets – especially if it were lined with material.  It is hallmarked to the base for London 1997 with the maker’s mark ‘GAEL’ and it has further marks inside the lid.  Unfortunately, I can’t find any identification of the maker’s mark so suspect it may be that of an individual silversmith or small studio.
This box is in good, usable condition and the lid fits securely.  However, there are a few things to bring to your attention.   To the bottom edge, there is a small area of grazing and to the inner rim there is a small dink (both shown in the photos).  Also, to the bottom section there are some areas of shadowing (particularly to the base of the box).  I suspect this has been caused by contact with a chemical cleaner at some stage.  However, the visible areas aren’t very noticeable.  Please be aware that silver is a soft metal so there will be some fine surface abrasions and marks caused through 22 years of handling.  All aspects are shown in the photos below and reflected in the asking price.
Please note I am currently listing an identical piece that doesn’t have flaws but is more expensive as a result.

SHIPPING
ALL ITEMS ARE SENT BY ROYAL MAIL Signed-For services with full insurance cover in order to comply with Paypal regulations on Buyer Protection.  Prices are calculated to include the weight of packaging as well as the weight of the item. I will automatically combine shipping costs at the best possible rate should anyone buy more than one item.  **International Buyers please note that any local import duties due on items are the responsibility of the buyer **
  Payment

Payment is required within 72 hours of committing to buy an item or an sale ending. Paypal is the preferred method of payment and the only option open to Overseas buyers. Cheques or Postal Orders are accepted from UK buyers subject to clearance of funds which normally takes about 5 working days after receipt. Buyers who wish to collect in person may pay in advance through Paypal or in cash upon collection.

Shipping

I endeavour to ship items within 2 working days of cleared payment. All packages are sent by Royal Mail Signed-For service and have adequate insurance built in to the postage cost. I do not make any profit on postage/insurance costs and don?t charge for packaging. To ensure items are safe in transit, I package them very well and, unfortunately, this does increase mailing costs somewhat. All packages must be signed for upon receipt. Failure to do so or collect a package will result in it being returned to me and the buyer will be responsible for the cost of re-sending the item. Any Import Duties, Taxes and other charges due on International purchases are the sole responsibility of the buyer. I am happy to combine postal charges for multiple purchases and have a policy of automatically refunding any overpaid postage if I have over-estimated it.

Terms of Sale

My aim is to try to ensure that items I sell fully meet the buyer's expectation and, for this reason, I provide photos of all aspects of items on sale and give a very detailed written description and condition report. PLEASE NOTE that all items sold are used and are either Antique or Vintage which means there will be some very light surface abrasions caused through cleaning and use.

If a buyer purchases an item and it does not match its description or photos, I will give a no quibble refund for the cost of the item and the shipping costs incurred. If, however, a buyer changes his/her mind about a purchase, then he/she may also return it for a full refund of the item's cost but the outward and return shipping costs will be the responsibility of the buyer.

Should you wish to return an item, please contact me as soon as possible after receiving it. To qualify for a refund, Items must be returned to the seller within 14 days of the date of receipt. Return postage must be by the same, secure method as that originally used to dispatch the item to the buyer which will normally be a Signed-For Mail Service with adequate compensation included. Once I have safely received the item and checked that it is unused and in the same condition as it was when it was originally dispatched, the relevant refund will be made to the buyer's Paypal account.

About Us

I source and re-home high quality antique and vintage silver at wholesale prices. On the odd occasion, I come across something that might have had a bit of a rough life but deserves a second chance rather than being consigned to the melting pot. In all cases, because buyers are purchasing from a distance, I always provide in-depth condition reports and multiple high-magnification images in my listings to give you as much information as possible.Through selling online, I maintain low overheads and try to set 'Buy It Now' prices at a lower rate than those charged by most antique shops and fairs.
I am very passionate about the pieces I sell and am most happy when they go to a new home where they'll be fully appreciated.
