Here's a lovely, heavy dresser or trinket box, measuring 5 1/4 inches wide, 3 1/2 inches deep and about 2 1/2 inches tall, in continental 800 solid silver. This piece weighs in at over seven ounces (206g)! The hand tooling or engraving is elaborate, if somewhat rustic, which gives it a unique character. Probably Italian, but we have only the assay 800 mark to work with. Certainly antique, circa late 19th century and possibly earlier, due to the hand worked nature. I brought this home and put it on our dresser, and had to pry it out of my wife's hands. It simply looks gorgeous wherever it is placed. Wonderful, unique shape to this one. In excellent condition with a good hinge. Really a great piece!
