An exceptional George III Silver Gilt Snuff Box made in London in 1816 by Daniel Hockly


The Snuff Box is broad rectangular in form with cut corners. The stepped cover is inset with a most unusual agate panel surrounded by the inscription Mrs Baker to Benjamin Milward Esq in testimony of her esteem and regard. The sides are decorated with an unusual crisp band of raised flower heads and shells and the base displays engine turned engraving. The interior is finely gilded and is very well marked. Daniel Hockly made some of the finest Snuff Boxes in London at this date and his work is scarce and much sought after.
