This is a beautiful ornate Silver Pill Box, perfect for storing pills or small items of jewellery in.
It comes in a lovely gift bag and it would make a great present.
It’s made of .833 Silver and has Dutch Hallmarks and the date letter for 1826. It has the duty marking the side and the date letter on the lid. The lion Hallmark has been over stamped with a key signifying it was exported from the Netherlands between 1853 and 1953. The maker’s mark is JY.
The pill box has a very pretty ornate pattern to the exterior. It is hinged and the lid opens and shuts well. The Silver is shiny. It has EL 1964 engraved on the front of the box.
There are a couple of tiny dints on the lid and it very slightly pops upwards when closed although the lid stays shut.
It weighs 22g and measures 4.5cm diameter (1 3/4 inches). The depth is approx 1.5cm (5/8 inch).
