This gorgeous antique sterling silver dresser or jewelry box is engraved with initials that appear to be MPC and Xmas 1899. The repousse pattern has not been identified but consists of many tiny flowers and "C" designs. The Tiffany maker's mark is along the inside rim. The pattern number is 12782 which was introduced between 1896 and 1897. The order mark which was used in-house is 1174. It is also incised sterling silver 925-1000. The box is about 5.5" long, 3.5" wide and 1.5" deep.There are a few tiny dings and light scratch marks on the underside, but nothing significant, especially for a 111 year old item. It has not been polished, as I will leave that to the buyer. The box weighs 7.5 ounces. I will be listing a matching oblong box as well.
