French Silver & Copper Table Snuff Box Victorian 1850 School Scene Molet:
This is for a superb old Victorian silver plated French copper table snuff box from around 1850. The lidhas an interesting and really detailed raisedscene depicting a school classroom with a group of children playing up whilst the teacher is trying to get in. The children are holding books, feather dip pens and look to be putting benches against the door to block the teacher out.The scene is well detailed andcleverly built up in relief and the sides and base of the box are very finely hand engraved with various diffeent patterns and floral motifs. The box is nicely gilded insideand it all adds up to a very well made, unusual and interestingfine quality box. The box is stamped 'Molet' in two places buu this name is unknown to me. Itis in excellent condition with no damage, there are no dents, the lid sits tight and flush against the baseand there is hardly any wear to the silver plate. It measures 90mm (3.5")by 55mm (2.25") by 20mm nearly 1" the other antique smoking and writing implements, trinket & jewellery boxes, art deco and art nouveauitems and all the other vintage ladies and gentlemans accessories I am selling on this week.
