This lovely round pillbox is larger than most, measuring 2 1/4" in diameter and 7/8" thick and weighs 39.8 grams. The domed lid is beautifully hand-engraved with flowers and plumes surrounding a center cartouche featuring a monogram, MFC, in ornate script. The box is marked "sterling, Theodore B. Starr, New York, 600," and also with a fleur-de-lis punch mark. Starr was in business from 1862 until 1923. His firm became part of Reed & Barton. This pillbox is in excellent original condition with one small dent. The mark dates this pillbox as having been made between 1907 and 1918.
