This beauty is a gent's snuffbox or pillbox from the Edwardian Period. It is over 100 years of age. The pure silver cylinder is 1.5" in diameter and .75" in height. it has a perfect grape colored purple cabochon bezel set to form a knob to open and close the box, which closes sweetly with a little click. it is hallmarked on the bottom and clean and perfect on the inside. It fits in the palm of my hand, which is a pretty small hand, and the lid opens to about a 90 degree angle. In the picture for some reason, the amethyst looks blue, but it is a true purple, very rich in color. This lovely little box has no dents bumps, and very minimal scratches. Someone took very good care of this little treasure.
This Snuffbox/pillbox is the perfect gift for yourself or the man in your life who loves antique artifacts and needs a place to put his "doodads' as my dad would call all the detritus that comes out of his pockets at night. It also makes a lovely addition to any collection of Antique boxes. This box is a perfect specimen of its time. I wonder who will find it 100 years from now?
