The absolutely beautiful repousse work on this old antique silver box is what makes it a stand- out piece, and I think it's an early one(maybe 1860). There is a large unused cartouche right in the center--perfect to inscribe something special to your loved-one, and what a lovely engagement or wedding ring box this would make. It measures 2 1/2" long x 1 3/4" wide x 1/2" deep and weighs 2.5 oz. or 70 grams and has been tested as sterling. There is some overall age wear, but its definitely none the worse for it! The bottom and sides have an allover geometric box pattern with lines connecting small flowers, and the top is full of flourishes around the edges. It has a very French feeling to me, and I love anything French.
