Sweet little sterling silver Victorian stamp/pill or ring covered box. It has a swirly floral design to the case and the shaped overhanging top. There are three individual compartments in the interior. It was made by George W. Sheibler, NYC. (see photo of mark on bottom of box). From the internet: " Shiebler was a highly skilled and innovative designer and over the years obtained a number of patents flatware patterns and souvenir spoons.
In 1892 the firm was incorporated as George W. Shiebler & Co. The company was especially noted for his medallion work, inspired to the excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum, oxidized silver and transparent enamel work.
Some of the handsomest enamelling works done in the United States came from Shiebler factory. Two special artists were employed for this work alone. Five designers and nine die sinkers created exclusive designs and dies which made George W. Shiebler famous in every silver and jewelry house of the country." It is very solid and weighs a healthy four troy ounces. This is a sterling gem with many potential uses (other than decorative)!
Circa: 1890. Dimensions: 1.5"H x 3.5"W. Condition: Not recently polished, some residue from previous polishing is in the cracks - this would polish out beautifully and easily if that was the owner wishes. Good condition with normal wear. Price: $495
