Vintage Sterling Silver and Handpainted Porcelain Lily Flowers Mini Heart Box, London 1987 #d142
This lovely little box was created by the Clive Norman Bullivant company of London and is comprised of fine sterling silver and what I believe to be handpainted porcelain, although it is possible it is handpainted enamel. The box is heart-shaped and pulls apart to open. The lid has a porcelain (or enamel) inlay with a beautiful handpainted rendering of red lily flowers with yellow centers, flowing green branches and leaves. The rest of the outside of the box is finished in a smooth silver and the interior has a brushed silver finish. The delightful little box would make a splendid presentation box for a small piece of jewelry or could be used to store pills and other small items to take along in a purse. It's a marvelous tiny treasure!

The box measures about 3/4 inch long, 11/16 inch wide and 9/16 inch tall. It is signed and hallmarked with the letters "CNB" for Clive Norman Bullivant, with a lion symbol for sterling silver, with a lion face for the London Assay office and with a letter "N" for the year 1987 on the back of the box. It is also hallmarked with a lion symbol for sterling silver and with the letter "N" for the year 1987 on the inside of the box. The box weighs 10.2 grams.

This is a wonderful handcrafted box that could be used to hold pills, jewelry or tiny trinkets. It's a nice item to display in a curio or on a desk and would make a lovely gift. I think it would be a beautiful little gift box for the presentation of small jewelry pieces. The box is in excellent vintage condition with no chips or cracks to the porcelain. It's beautiful!
