Re: Any information please about this Austrian sugar box?

Hi PBF
it is interesting that the lion has a key in his mouth,does this key come out of his mouth?
If not I would have a copy of that key made for the box.

Just a thought that may be of interest.

Re: Guilloche enamel box - 935, Austria? Germany?

Hi members This box is not Guilloche enamel,It may be enamel painted, Guilloche enamel is when the base under the enamel is engine turned with a intricate design and then enameled so that the engine turned base can be seen through the (clear) enamel.I am not sure about the marks,but I agree with Den...

Re: Snuff box identification

Hi Ag I have not heard of that method applying a finished enamel section on to a case like this,because of the stress on the enamel base during firing if the base is to thin,and then risking some more damage to the enamel attaching it to the case(by what method soldering or some sort of adhesive )ca...

Re: Snuff box identification

Hi members
The painting on the box does not look like enamel to me, it looks like a glued on print. Maybe better images may help.

Re: new info on my enamel top cigarette box

Hi AG I agree with most of what you say , my main point I wanted to share is that the plaque may have been made earlier than the box if it used to be a wall hanging plaque .I also would suggest some of these things are done closer to when the originals are painted when it is more in fashion ,rather ...

Re: age and maker of this box with painting scene

Hi Sasropakis
Many thanks for your reply,I did find that info online before my post,I was hoping there may be more info on B Wicker, is seems there is not much known about him and where and when he worked.I would say your guess on the period it was made it probably correct
again many thanks.

Re: Identification requested on Victorian Box

Hi members
I just have a thought the the quality of the lid on the box is much better than the base .could the lid not be original to the base. I would be interested in members views.
Kind Regards Guido.
