This is a gorgeous sterling silver Italian dresser box, made and sold through the renowned Italian family Ugo Bellini of Florence circa 1940's.
The box is beautifully hand chased, on all sides, with four lion paw feet.
The top of the box displays a genuine large green Malachite stone, with concentric circles, set in a serrated bezel. There are four applied panels that are as fine as jewelry with their marcasites and blue paste stone.
Size, 5.3/4" Length x 4.5/8" Width x 1.1/2" Depth
Weight, 515 grams
Hallmarks, 925, U. Bellini,Florence. The strike is a little compromised.
The inside is shiny and in beautiful condition. The outside has a dark patina which I have not touched.
A very elegant box to add to your vanity, dresser or table.
