Heart shaped box for the vanity or dresser with gorgeous ornate patterns in the silver. Mark is "Pairpoint Mfg. Co. New Bedford, Mass. Quadruple Plate, Pat. Applied For". This quadruple silver plate box is in such beautiful condition, that it looks just like sterling silver. Made in 1894, and looks like the day it was made. The box sits on three feet, it opens with a strong hinge, and the bottom is lined with black velvet. About the size of a collar box, 4.75 by 4.5 inches, by 2.5 inches high. The cartouche on the top is hand engraved with initials and '94 . The pattern on the sides is extremely ornate openwork scrolls. The pattern on the solid top is roses and leaves and scrolls. This is a beautiful example of Victorian era silver plate, made by one of the best companies, Pairpoint. Even though this is 124 years old, condition is excellent, so this heart shape box would make a lovely gift for a sweetheart.
