Superb Antique German Solid Silver Gilt Relief Decorated Ladies Trinket Pill or Snuff Box circa 1895
This Antique Trinket, Pill or Snuff Box measuresapproximately 1 5/8 inches or 42 mm across the length of its body from side to side by just under 1 1/4 inches or 31 mm across the width of its body from the hinge to the front catch and it stands just over 1/2 an inch or 14 mm tall to the top of its lid when closed.
The boxis made fromsolid silver that has been internallygilded or gold plated in an oval shape and it has a three section piano hinge on the back of its lid that overhangs the top of the body slightly acting as a thumb or finger catch for ease of opening, the outer body and lid have been superbly embossedor raised relief and engrave decorated and the box has Not been engraved with a previous owners initials or family monogram, the underside of its body has been impressed with the German half moon and crown800 standard solid silver mark all as photographed below and I estimate that this antique trinket, pill or snuff box was made circa 1890 - 1900.
Thecondition is used and near Mint for its age.
The BoxhasNo Dents, No Holes, NoSplits, No Cracksand No Repairs thatI can find, theboxstands straight, the decoration is fairly crisp, the hinge is working perfectly, the lid opens and closes tightly with ease, the internal gilding is a good colour with only minimal wear, the German silver marks are still legible although as the box is a usedantique it doeshave some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use along with the patine of age that is to beexpected and a good clean would enhance it greatly. Personally I think that this antique German trinket, pill or snuff box can still be used today and that itwould make a superb addition to any cabinet collection, I also thinkthat itlooks fantasticconsidering thatit's around 110 or so yearsold.
