This handsome box has a hinged lid and an incised decoration of a fish in the center of the lid, revealing the copper beneath the silver. The box measures 5 5/8 inches long, 5 inches wide, and 5/8 inches tall. The interior has two rectangular sections and we're not certain if it was meant to hold playing cards, or cigarettes. The inside is clean and without odors, and could be used for many trinkets now. Each interior compartment measures 4 3/4 inches by 2 3/4 inches. It is signed on the base with a logo, "N B Ss, Made in England," and the number "1." The box is in good condition, with no dents, warps, or breaks. There is some wear of the silver, particularly along edges. There are no monograms or engravings. The maker could not be identified, however we estimate that this box was made circa 1940s/50s.
