Here is a lovely silverplate heart shaped trinket box featuring a center cartouche which has been engraved "M.A.C." against a black background. It is reflective of the art nouveau style with its flowing lines. It is marked with the Weidlich Brothers mark 'W B Mfg Co' and is likely circa 1920. The Weidlich Brothers were well known for their metal art and produced a large number of heavy silver plated boxes.
It measures 4 1/2" long x 3 3/8" wide x 3" tall and is quite heavy for its size at 1 lb. 2 oz. It opens and closes nicely and the blue velvet lining is soft to the touch and in good condition. There is some discoloration of the silver and some minor nicks around the edges, but none that are really noticeable. I don't know if the center cartouche was decorated with black by the manufacturer, jeweler or by its owner, but it certainly makes the piece unique! Please email me with any questions and thanks for looking!
