You are viewing a very fine quality early silver table engraved box. The box measures 4" long by 2 3/4" wide. It stands 7/8" high. The top of the box has a hand engraved portrait of a Gentleman Farmer harvesting his crop.The box is hallmarked on the bottom with numerous hallmarks. I believe the box is either Dutch or German. It is also marked sterling which was added later in its' life and tests for sterling content. There is some very minor pitting on the inside bottom and some scratches on the bottom from use. The box weighs 6.14 oz.
