Careful packaging

I have been collecting silver for the last 40 years, carefully selecting every single piece for its rarity, provenance, historical significance, excellent craftsmanship, functional peculiarity and harmonious proportions ...

Time has now come to release it back into the market, so that new generations of demanding collectors can enjoy silver as much as I did.

Good luck to your biddings !!!

    I have obviously not received any payment and the buyer has correctly been refunded by Catawiki. An accident has occurred to me and because of that I was not able to deliver. I am sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    Dear John Brouwer, I am not a professional photographer and I took all the 13 different detailed pictures of front, back, tops, bottoms and inside the covers as well as the bodies of both bethel boxes just using my smartphone without special effects and with natural light.

    Oggetto arrivato nei tempi, costi spedizione piuttosto elevati per spedizione a mezzo posta. L’oggetto non soddisfa le mie aspettative.

    This feedback is absolutely not correct. The body and cover of this solid silver box with gilt interior is unmarked but has been positively acid tested for 800 silver, as stated in the description The box has swiftly been delivered and the shipping charges were clearly indicated. Rosanna Bozzoli contacted me a few days ago asking me for a written guarantee and I promptly answered her I could ask for it to my jeweler. She was not satisfied with my answer and I suggested her to have the box tested (both body and cover) by her jeweler to make sure about the solid 800 silver fineness. She did not wrote me back with the acid test results. I doubt she has properly tested this box she paid 65€ because she already complained about the 26,99€ shipping costs and I told her I that my jeweler asked me 15€ to test it. I am still waiting for the test results from her.
