I inherited this lovely silver box from my mother. I always loved it and am so pleased to have it. She bought it in the 1950s in York but I have no idea who the maker is or exactly how old it is. I've hunted through London makers' marks to no avail. There is a cloverleaf with (I think) the initials WGC and finally a letter 'F'.
It measures 17cm x 10cm and is 7cm high
It was hard to take good photos. The Art Nouveau design is beautifully crafted and it's quite heavy - weighs approx 450gm
