Their dragonfly mark is stamped inside the top along with 935 for the silver content (purer than sterling). It has pale blue enameled sides feature garlands of hand painted roses and forget me nots. A lovely guilloche design is engraved in the silver and shows through the translucent enamel. Gold leaf dots are scattered around in the enamel. The top is set with a dimpled amethyst.
