This is a beautiful antique triple shell shaped silver plated biscuit box, circa 1900 in date.
It bears the makers mark KR&S with a crown.
Producing this gorgeous piece over tea would be certain to raise a few eyebrows. You could use it to serve your favourite biscuits or fill it with some delicious sweets.
The opening mechanism is as intricate as the detailing; the container opening out into three like the petals of a flower. The interior is what really sets this piece apart from the rest, with alluring surfaces and magnificent cherubs.
In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation of condition.
