This is an antique pill or snuff box that has a rococo and repousse decoration of two cherubs playing on the lid and above them are two flying birds. It has a lot of marks on the base, which include an English hallmark for London 1900/1 along with a letter F for import, the makers mark is JB in a heart shape for Julius Blanckensee along with Dutch silver marks and another makers mark SB &? There is also a maple leaf, a lion under crown and a comb looking shape.A nice little Dutch silver box with English hallmarks as well. The hinged lid is a little top heavy and closes but is a little loose, no proper snap. In nice condition with normal signs of age and use wear. The corners of the lid are bent slightly downwards, and the pattern is not as sharp as it once was due to being polished. Overall a nice little box.
It still retains some gilt to the interior. Please see pictures for more details.
