SOLD

Antique or vintage Continental .800 solid silver hinged lid box with gold wash interior, marked 800 with another illegible mark, and with a crowned R; putti motif with floral and scroll accents throughout; you could fit most cigarettes in it, too; measures just over 3-5/8"L X 2.75"w X 1-1/8"h (dollar bill shown in image for size comparison only); weighs about 131 grams.  Antique/vintage, pre-owned, imperfect, used condition - some tarnish, residue, surface wear, dings/tiny dents and scratching. There is a small crack to the side of the lid on one side (pictured). 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.
