This delightful, French, silver pill or snuff box dates to the late nineteenth century. It bears a two insect marks which I cannot identify. These are possibly provincial marks. The box tests as 800-900 quality silver.

It measures 1 and 9/16” (3.5cms) across the base and is 13 mms deep . It weighs 10.2 grams.

On the lid is an exquisite, scrolling frame ornamented with pretty flowers. It has been left blank for a monogram , The background has fine lines and the edge is finished with a delicate curving design with tiny scrolls. Below the lid are bolder wavy lines.

The box opens easily from the front. The interior has a very light gold wash. On the inside rim are the marks referred to above. It closes firmly with a click.. The back is plain silver.

It is good to find one of these boxes in such a wonderful design and in such fine condition with no dings or dents. It will arrive carefully presented in a gift box.
