The absolutely beautiful repousse work on this heavy antique silver box is what makes it a stand-out piece, and I think it's an early one. There is a large cartouche right in the center which is a little worn, but it's perfect to inscribe something personal, and what a lovely engagement or wedding ring box this would make. The bottom and sides have an all-over diamond-shaped pattern with lines connecting small flowers, and the top is full of flourishes around the edges. It measures 2.50 inches long x 1.75 inches wide x 0.50 inches deep and weighs 2.5 oz. or 70 grams and has been tested as sterling. There is some normal wear from age and use on the top, and this piece is simple and beautiful.
Naturally eco-friendly and green, antiques and vintage are the ultimate in helping the environment.
