This is a delightful and quirky six-sided box that stands on four feet. On the top is the engraved message “Where are my ?” with two applied vintage hairpins. The interior is plain and on the base is a mark with ‘MD Made in England EPBN’ (Electroplated Britannia Metal) and the number ‘4430’. There is scattered wear to the exterior and the inside has lost large sections of the silverplating but this could be re-lined. This is an amusing example of a box for a specific purpose (on this occasion for hairpins) of a previous era. Box measures 3.75 ins (9.5cm) x 2.5 ins (6.5cm) x 1 ins (2.5cm). Weight 118 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 387. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $26.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper.
