This is a delightful and practical small sterling box by the American company Volupté. It has silver hinges so that the box can be opened without losing its contained pills or sugar substitutes! This particular little box is decorated on the top with bands of fine engraved lines and has a personalised or query company monogram ‘L V’, and the inside of the box is marked for Volupté USA and there is a sterling mark on the front. This is a most useful item to tuck away into a small bag or in a pocket. 1.25 ins (3.25cm) x 1 ins (2.5cm) x 0.5 ins (1cm). Weight 12 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 223.
