Vintage Filigree Solid Silver Enamel Crucifix Top Book Shape Trinket Or Pill Box For Sale
Vintage Filigree Solid Silver Enamel Crucifix Top Novelty Book Shape Trinket or Pill Box circ 1940's
This Vintage Trinket or Pill Box measures approximately 1 1/2 inches or 38 mm across its length from the top to the bottom edge by just under 1 1/4 inches or 31 mm across its width from the hinged back to the front edge and it is just over 3/8 of an inch or 11 mm deep from back to front.
The boxis madefrom solid silver that has been internally gilded or gold plated in a rectangular book or bible like shape with solid relief rib decorated sides and it has wonderful solid silver wire or intricate filigree silver decorated back, rear rounded side or back edge and lid, the filigree decoration is within relief rope effect decorated outer borders and the top of the lid has a blue enamel decorated cross with a raised relief image of Jesus Christ that is in the form of a crucifix, the box has a three section piano hinged lid and it has Not been engraved with a previous owners initials or family monogram, the back of the body has been impressed with a Portuguese 833 standard solid silver mark that is along side an unknown Portuguese silversmith or makers mark all as photographed below and this style of Portuguese solid silver mark was used from 1938, I estimate that this delightful trinket or pill box was made circa 1940's.
Thecondition isused and near Mint forits age.
The Enamel Decoration is in Mint condition with No Chips and No Loss.
TheBox has No Dents,No Cracks, No Splits, No Holes and No Repairs that I can find, the filigree decoration is crisp with no missing pieces, no splits and no holes that should not be there, the box stands straight, the hinge is working perfectly, the lid opens and closes tightly withease, the Portuguese silver and makers marks are still legible although as this box is a used antique it does have some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use along with the patina of age that is tobe expected and a gentleclean would enhance it greatly. PersonallyI think this vintage book or bible shape trinket or pill box can still be used today and that it would make a superbaddition to any cabinet collection, I also think that it looks absolutely fantastic considering that it's around 70 or so years old.
ThisDelightful Vintage Portuguese Solid Silver Novelty Book or Bible Shape Filigree, Enamel &Crucifix Decorated Trinket or Pill Box circa 1940's is one of several pieces of antique and collectable silver that Ihave alsolisted.
