Here is a pillbox that may be worn around one's neck on a chain or carried on a key chain. It is marked "sterling Mexico" on the back, an older mark dating from before World War II. The lozenge-shaped box features a finely wrought, raised design of apple blossoms on the lid. The little box is of good weight, 8.2 grams, and measures 1 3/4" long, including the bail, 1" wide and 5/16" thick. It is in excellent original condition.
