American Gorham Sterling Heart Trinket Box Embossed Garland Cartouche Roses Monogram
This is an American made Rhode Island Gorham Sterling Silver Hallmarked Heart Shape Trinket Box . It has two working hinges, a good tight close. It has an engraved monogram a combination of three letters. It is decorated with repousse cartouche garlands of roses.
Circa early 1900's, it is in fair condition. It has been over-polished in its day. It has worn through on two spots, hard to see. You can tell from the inside of the lid two colored spots, that is where the tiny holes are. I photographed them from the top. This piece needs a proper polish.
It measures 3 ½ x 3 ¼ x 1 3/8ths and weighs 91 grams.
