This is a gorgeous vintage Italian pill box made of 800 silver (a lower grade of silver than sterling), beautifully enameled with an image of a courting couple. The enameled image is very finely detailed and the box is chased on the sides and back with a scrolled design. The silver retains its original gold wash. It is marked in the interior 800 and Made in Italy.
It measures 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/4 inches and it is in very nice condition with some light wear to the finish.
