Copper & silver cigarette box made by A.E.Jones Ltd, circa 1905. The body of the box is sheet copper with silver metal strips at each edge. The silver decoration on top of the box is fitted with a bluey-green enamel roundel. All silver metal strips are fitted with silver rivets. Cedar lined and fitted with a moveable internal divider. The patination on the box is quite possibly original as copper was patinated using a process developed by F.W.Salthouse.  

This box is described on page 17 of the book "A Edward Jones,Metalcraftsman", Birmingham museum & art gallery, ISBN 0 7093 0055 7.
 
The book shows a drawing of the silver motif (openwork circles). The motif was a designed by Anne. G. Stubbs for Jesson, Birkett & Co. (Design No. 1704) and probably dates to 1905.
