Novelty 1876 Silver Rupee Coin Snuff Pill Box Raj Anglo Indian Silver Trench Art:
This fantastic snuff box or pill case stands 20mm (.75'') high x 30mm (1.25'') across and weighs 43 grams. It is cleverly made from two silver Queen Victoria Rupees. One dated 1876 and one dated 1885 with the edge made to look like a stack of 10 coins in total and has a tight fitting screw top lid with the lid invisible when screwed shut. It was probably produced by Indian soldiers before WW1 and is an interesting piece of Anglo-Indian Raj novelty silver in good condition with no repairs.
