This is a very unusual silver box. It features interesting niello design all throughout with a very nice scene of dancing people at the top. The box has two compartments. The smaller one has a cigar cutter (a hole for putting a cigar in and a lid that cuts the cigar off). The box is gilted on the inside. It is hallmarked with a boar's head which was used in France to denote 80% silver purity. There are tears and wears but the overall condition is good. Both lids are functional and open and close. The smaller lid is not as firm as the larger lid when fully open though. Length total: 2 1/4 inches (1.5 + 3/4), width: 1.0 inches, height: 0.5 inches, weight: 1.3 oz.
