MANLY ANTIQUE CENTRE
It dates to the late
around 1885 and bears
the first corporate mark for James Dixon and Sons of the trumpet
(bugle) and banner which was granted in 1879.
The second mark with their name or initials added to the trumpet
symbol was granted in 1890 so this dates our gorgeous biscuit box to
between these two dates.
It is in very good
condition with little
or no rubbing found to
the silver plate.
The catch is a little stiff on one side but still works.
The gilt lined interior shows a little deterioration with a bit
of spotting but nothing too serious.
The patent number 11,350.85
is stamped underneath.
The James Dixon mark is stamped on one of the magnificently pierced
It stands 27.5cm to
the top of the handle
and 32cm wide open
(not including the catches).
Overall the condition is
exceptional and it is simply a delight to the eyes.
