George VI sterling silver desk box.  Made in Birmingham in 1951. Rectangular with plain and straight sides.  Cover flat and hinged with engine-turned ornament: horizontal waves bordered by wrap-around waves and lines. In center vertical lines terminating in notched comma-form tab.  Corner supports same. Box interior cedar lined.  Box underside leather lined.

A snazzy design with lots of room for engraving (cover interior also plain).  Indistinct maker’s mark, though probably Barker Bros.  Very good condition with crisp corners.
