Early 18th C. Agate & Gold Box
Perfectly marvelous, a late 17th or early 18th century box has been crafted from hard stone agate. With a superb design, the box feels just exquisite when held in the palm of the hand. Cleaved and carved, one solid agate was used for the base and lid. Please note the scalloped perimeter of 22k yellow gold and the five part hinge characteristic of the period. Later date hinges were mostly of three parts except for those which were extremely long.
Date: Circa 1700.
Measurements: Box is 1-3/8 inches in diameter (3.5 cm) and 15/16 of an inch (2.5 cm) in height at highest point. Weight is 27.6 grams (17.7 dwt).
Condition: Very good; a natural inclusion and hairline inclusion on bottom (see photographs).
