Vintage German standard .800 solid silver hinged lid and footed dresser box with gold wash interior, marked 800 with crescent and crown, c. 1940s; engraved: To My Darling Virginia from Your Loving Husband Walt, Nov. 7 1945; cherub motif with lid scene of 3 cherubs frightened by a lizard of sorts, floral swag accents throughout; measures about 5-3/8" diameter and 2-3/8" height (dollar bill shown in image for size comparison only); weighs about 358 grams.  Vintage, pre-owned, imperfect, used condition - some tarnish, residue, surface wear and scratching. Acquired from a smoking household; the interior smells a mix of smoke and perfume but we will be airing it out. Didn't polish or clean this as some collectors have different preferences re: tarnish. Please see photos.
