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 cartouche right in the center which seems a little worn, but it's perfect to inscribe something personal, and what a lovely engagement or wedding ring box this would make. It measures 2.50 inches long x 1 0.75 inches wide x 0.50 inches deep and weighs 2.5 oz. or 70 grams and has been tested as sterling. There is some overall age wear, but its a beautiful piece. 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, including profiles of eagles on each side.
