Here for sale is a fantastic oak box with a brass plaque to the front with "Bengeo Church" and a plaque on the inside with "J. Turner, Silversmith and Jeweller, 58 and 59 New Bond St, London.
John and Charles Turner were Jewellers and Goldsmiths from the early 19th Century up to around 1870. In 1841 they were listed as Goldsmiths to the Queen.
Bengeo is a suburb of Hertford and former village in Hertfordshire.
We assume that the box was commissioned by J. Turner to hold the silver of the church.
Beautiful item full of history. Some wear to the lower part of the front.
Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.
