A nice antique sterling silver chatelaine accessory. I believe this is for holding wax for sealing letters during the Victorian/Edwardian era. It has a pierced design, it is not sealed so you can see how much contents are inside, there is some wax just inside the lid. The wax holder is marked "Sterling, 880" and has a hallmark that resembles a Unicorn(?). Overall dimensions are 3 1/8" x 1/4" x 1/8", it is heavy weight silver, not thinly stamped. The wax holder is in very good overall condition. It would be perfect in a Victorian era silver or jewelry related collection.
