Lovely large antique German hallmarked continental .800 (nearly sterling) silver 4" wide table snuff box or jewelry casket, oval shape with musical instruments, torches, arrows & cornucopia in bas relief, romantic themed figural medallion, gold plated or 'vermeil' interior and wonderful condition & visual appeal! Exceptional, this was most likely a large table snuff box, given it's size and style though what you use it for is really only limited by your imagination. The hallmarks are of German origins and for J.D. Schleissner Sohne circa 1816-1900s. It also has French import hallmarks of the small 'weevil' and what looks like a French silversmith mark but I've not found reference to it as of yet. A gorgeous piece, don't miss it!
Very good to excellent condition. A very small 'push' to the edge of the base on one side but, as you can see, no dents, damage or repairs. Even the interior shows little to no signs of wear to the gold or vermeil. See pictures for weight and measurements.
