Fine Antique Silver & Objects of Vertu
Chinese Export Silver Combination Snuff Box & Vinaigrette
Made by 'P'
Length 2.5" (6.4cm); Weight 3.3 troy oz (103g)
Very unusual combination snuff box and vinaigrette
The maker 'P' is a rare silversmith and his pieces are sort after
At the moment there is no name for this maker other than 'P'
There are a few small dents to the body
The inner sheet/separator is loose, originally it would not have been
One inner side-guide on snuff box lid has come adrift
(Both could be repaired but I strongly advise against doing so,
as it will ruin the colour of the silver if silver-solder was used)
Otherwise good detail, mark and condition
A lovely little box
