In Ancient Greek mythology, the Phoenix bird represents renewal and rebirth. It's a long-lived bird that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again. A phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. It's strongly associated with the sun.

This heavy sterling silver pill box has both sun and phoenix images engraved on the lid with more intricate Art Nouveau style design work around the sides.

The sun face has a bright smile though he looks a bit mischievous. The phoenix is on the left and a torch like image is on the right...also relating to the Greek folklore.

Box measures 1 1/2 by 1 3/4 inches. It's 5/8 inch thick. It weighs 42 grams.

The hallmarks on the back include...'nt - 925' - and two more unknown hallmarks.

The lid closes securely. There's a loop so this can be hung from a chain or cord to be worn as a pendant / box.

This fine old estate piece is in excellent vintage condition. A very impressive piece for pills, mantras, good luck charms.
