Late 19th century
Circular, the slip-on cover decorated with the Prussian Eagle clutching orb and scepter, within laurel border containing original wax imperial seal, and tasseled braided cords-6 in. diam.
Purchased from The Armoury of St. James, London
Overall very good condition. The ends of the cord which is tied around the circumfrance of the case are frayed. The silver thread of the cord and tassels have tarnished. The silver metal box has tarnish in crevasses of design and some stains. The red wax seal itself has pinpoint areas of white crust. There is a discoloured smear on the wax at approximately 11o'clock. There is a scratch on the surface of the wax on the body and arm of the figure and the drapery (proper left).
