Superb Antique German Solid Silver Gilt Ladies Trinket, Pill or Snuff Box by Martin Mayer circa 1895

This Antique Trinket, Pill or Snuff Box measuresapproximately 1 7/8 inches or 48 mm across the length of its body from side to side by 1 1/2 inches or 39 mm across the width of its body from the hinge to the front catch and it stands5/8 of an inch or 16 mm tall to the top of its lid when closed.

The boxis made fromsolid silver that has been internallygilded or gold plated in an oval shape and it has a three section piano hinge on the back of its lid that has a shaped thumb or finger catch on the front edge for ease of opening, the outer body and lid have been superbly embossedor raised relief and engrave decorated with foliate swags, flowers and bows, the front of the body along with the top of the lid each has an oval shaped cartouche that has Not been engraved with a previous owners initials or family monogram and the side rim of the lid has been impressed with a couple of later French solid silver imported item marks all as photographed below, the underside of the base or body has been impressed with the makers pattern number 74 that is below the German half moon and crown800 standard solid silver mark, this is along side the Mainz silversmith or maker mark of MartinMayer who are recorded as being foundedin 1888,I estimate that this antique trinket, pill or snuff box was made circa 1890 - 1900.

Thecondition is used and near Mint for its age.

The BoxhasNo LargeDents, No Holes, NoSplits, No Cracksand No Repairs thatI canfind, theboxstands straight, the decoration is fairly crisp, the hinge is working perfectly, the lid opens and closes tightly with ease, the internal gilding is a good colour with only minimal wear, the German silver and makers marks are still legible although as the box is a usedantique it doeshave the odd very small shallow dent in the underside or base of its body that is hardly worth mentioning and it has some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use,it has the patine of age that is to beexpected and a good clean would enhance it greatly. Personally I think that this antique German trinket, pill or snuff box can still be used today and that itwould make a superb addition to any cabinet collection, I also thinkthat itlooks fantasticconsidering thatit's around 110 or so yearsold.

This Delightful Antique GermanSolid Silver Gilt Relief Decorated Ladies Trinket, Pill or SnuffBoxby Martin Mayer of Mainz circa 1895 is one of several piecesof antique and collectable silverthat I have alsolisted.
