Chinese Silver Boxes

Antique Chinese export silver boxes afford the opportunity for a collector to buy the very earliest Eighteenth Century antique Chinese export silver snuffboxes, as well as Chinese silver cigarette boxes made in the Twentieth Century. Also from the mid-19th Century, boxes were also made to cater for the new habit of smoking opium. But not all boxes were made to contain objects of mans’ vices, and from 1875 onwards many boxes were produced for jewellery or as dressing table items. We have a very large range of antique Chinese silver boxes in stock.
