This is a vintage sterling snuff box from Volupté.
It's a precious size, measuring only a little over an inch long.
The box speaks of quality construction and opens easily on a simple hinge and closes securely with a tiny, hidden clasp on the opposite side.
As you can see, the lid features a blank rectangular cartouche at the center and an elegant design of engraved repeating parallel lines.
The interior of the box shows a light gold wash. This would have prevented any undue oxidization.
A mark on the interior of the base reads "Volupté U.S.A." while a mark on the outer lip of the base reads simply "Sterling".
The little box shows some areas of dark patination, but we like the aged appeal this lends to the whole look.
We don't like to polish vintage pieces so it leaves it up to the buyer's preference as to polish or leave patinated.
Overall, the box is in very good vintage condition.
