German 930 silver box with scenes of Napoleon’s life. Imported to England in 1900 by Samuel Boaz Landeck in Sheffield. Rectangular with corner leaf-and-scroll mounted claw-and-ball feet. Cover hinged and raised with iconic image of Napoleon famously crowning himself. More highlights on sides with bowing courtiers and supplicating vanquished. Also a post-abdication scene with the abandoned and defeated emperor being transported to island exile. A poignant keepsake casket for the great man in your life. German maker and English import marks. Very good condition.

Overall dimensions: H 5 1/4 x W 10 1/2 x D 7 1/8 in. Weight: 45 troy ounces. #BR726
