A rare example of a costrel form combination scent / vinaigrette / pill box with hinged ends, screw top, suspended from a side-attached small link chain. The box appears to be made from bone and nickeled silver, with gilt interiors on each hinged end. The name S Mordan & Co, London is stamped inside one of the ends. The other end shows a foliate decorated pierced shaker. The box is in very good condition, with some bone splits, surface dents, and other imperfections and losses, as well as expected wear from age and use. Probably dates to circa 1870. Dimensions: 2” h x 2 ⅜: w x 1” d.
