A lovely vintage hexagonal repousse box beautifully made in 800 silver.
The hinged box has three different designs on the sides that alternate, the top has a beautiful basket of flowers.
The designs are beautifully executed with precision and great attention to detail. The top design is framed with a floral pattern, the sides of the top have a vine pattern.
The sides have detailed images of a pitcher, a horn, a torch, and a quiver of arrows, the back and front have a wreath.
I know that there is much symbolism in the designs though I am not sure what the box was used for. Possibly Judaic in origin, the bottom of the box is marked 800 with a six pointed star between two capital 'S's. The mark is very faint but can be seen under magnification.
Excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear, beautiful old patina and oxidation that accentuates the fine detail in the designs. The hinge is tight, the box opens and closes perfectly.
Measures 1.5" by 1" by 1.25" high, total weight is 21.1 grams.
A charming 800 silver box for use or display.
