Seller: merryjewels (1,664) 100%, Location: Tasmania, Ships to: AU & many other countries, Item: 232502993664 It is a very well made little box, and still in remarkably good condition - given its age! It has 2 French 'punch' hallmarks on the inside lip of the lid, indicating a silver content of 800-900 parts silver, slightly less than sterling silver, but usual for antique French silver items, and is often known as 'Continental Silver' The box's design is in the ornate baroque French style of the 17th and 18th centuries, but this lovely box is most likely made in the 19th or early 20th century. It has the same design top and bottom. Condition: The box is in very good condition. It has no damage, just some loss of shine to the original interior gilding. Antique French 19th Century Baroque Pill Box Snuff Continental 800 Silver Click images to enlarge Description Antique French 19th Century Baroque Design Pill Snuff Box Continental 800 Silver Excellent condition I remember buying this lovely antique pill box, or perhaps it was once a snuff box?, at a wonderful huge antique fair in regional France. It is a very well made little box, and still in remarkably good condition - given its age! It has 2 French 'punch' hallmarks on the inside lip of the lid, indicating a silver content of 800-900 parts silver, slightly less than sterling silver, but usual for antique French silver items, and is often known as 'Continental Silver' The box's design is in the ornate baroque French style of the 17th and 18th centuries, but this lovely box is most likely made in the 19th or early 20th century. It has the same design top and bottom, which is why some of the photos look the same, but I wanted to show every aspect and the great condition it is all in.. There is a plain cartouche in the middle, on top and bottom, which could be personalised with a monogram if desired. the interior still has its original gilding. Condition: The box is in very good condition. It has no damage, just some loss of shine to the original interior gilding. The bottom is not perfectly round at one tiny spot, so it may have had a bump on its edge at some stage. It is only noticeable on very close inspection - by feel really - just mentioned for 100% accuracy. It opens easily, shuts firmly, and stays securely closed. Perfect as a pill box! Dimensions: The box has a diameter of ~1 & 3/8ths inch (3.5cm) and is ~3/4 inch (1.8cm) high. It weighs 12.6 grams. Australian tracked shipping is $10.
