A similar box but with applied enamel ornament, used for gloves, was part of the collection of Catherine the Great. Fine Chinese filigree from the 1780-1825 and 1825-40 period appears with the marks of Bao Ying and Cutshing amongst others (see: Adrien von Ferscht, Chinese Export Silver 1785-1940, University of Glasgow, 2015)
