Dutch Solid Silver Snuff Box. This snuff box is made from solid silver. It is of cushioned, ovoid form and the hinged lid is decorated with a tavern scene and theres a band of foliate decoration around the rim.
The base of the box is stamped with the Dutch assay mark of a sword which indicates it is made from silver of at least 833 standard (83.3% purity) and this mark was used between 1906 and 1953. There is also the makers mark of Zaanlandse Zilversmederijen that produced silver between 1920 and 1990. From the style of this piece, I would estimate it to date the first quarter of the 20. This box is in lovely condition, the decorative detail is very crisp and it shuts nice and securely.
