This is a pretty little silver trinket box or cabinet box.
It is an older piece made by Janice Ainsworth - who works at Hansford Enamels in Birmingham.
She is a quality modern silversmith and her boxes are made with exquisite care and attention to detail
This is an older piece made by Janice - and it is fully hallmarked on the base - as photographed.
It is a wonderful hand-painted box - it shows a sweet little squirrel in a winter landscape - he is gnawing on a wee acorn. The detail really needs to be seen in close up - it is meticulous.
Being hand made and handcrafted - it is a unique piece.
It is certainly a fine solid silver box - with a nice size and weight to it
The box measures as follows: Diameter is 3 cm. With a height of is roughly 1.5 cm
Listed at a fair price - comparative with similar-sized base metal enamel boxes by Halcyon Days.
Any white marks on my photographs are not on the box - but are reflections from the shiny enamel surface of the lid.
It will be sent to you in a plain card gift box.
