Rare Antique Indian Burmese Solid Silver Matchbox Case Match Box Holder C1890:
Rare late Victorian Antique Burmese Solid Silver Match Box Holder. c1890
Fine Quality example - it features very intricate hand chasedand repousse work detail of a warrior on the front and intricately engraved scrollwork on the back and sides. Burmese repousse work was the best in the world and this is good example of it's type, rare on a matchbox holder. There is a small hole on the right side of the warrior's face where it joins the box. That wouldn't be a big job to fix and is obviously worth doing given the quality and rarity of the box.
Made from a good gauge of
solid silver, it weighs 22.5g.
Beautifully proportioned at 53mm x 34mm x 20mm.
Genuine and rare antique Burmese solid silver treasure
