Description

Antique 1916 jewellery box featuring a decorative silver top and moulded glass pot. The lid depicts Sir Joshua Reynolds 'Angel's Heads'.

 

As described by The Tate:

 

"This painting shows the head of five-year-old Lady Frances Gordon from five different angles. Reynolds took the idea from 17th-century Italian painting: in seeking to elevate the genre of portraiture he would borrow motifs or styles from the most admired art of the past. Critics praised Reynolds’s artistic ability. One claimed that, ‘The hand of nature never formed a finer face than this: not like the general run … of cherubims, with ruddy cheeks and round unmeaning faces, but sentiment, expression, and clearness, and warmth of colouring, that all must feel, but which the President of the Royal Academy alone can describe’."

 

The box has a number of marks, the 'Lion Passant, letter 'r' and a anchor markings indicate the piece was made from sterling silver and hallmarked in Birmingham, England in 1916. The lid fits snug onto the glass bottom.

 

The box has the makers mark BPDC, crafted by Boots Pure Drug Company. Boots as established in 1849 by John Boot a herbal medicine shop in Nottingham, England. Boots today is a multibillion-pound high street pharmaceutical chain.

 

The box is beautiful and compact, it would be the perfect container for small items of jewellery. In the 1900's it would have sat on a ladies dressing table, filled with her favourite rouge, powder or cream.
