Gorham antique silver pill box, sterling Victorian collectible silver box 1890

  • $18500 CAD

An antique Victorian Gorham silver pill box or snuff box, marked sterling on the inner edge of the body, the inside gilded. The lid has been decorated with a dramatic swirling pattern and the bottom has been engraved 'LJJ '91 770'. There are a couple of other hallmarks on the edge but they are hard to make out: it looks like a rooster, a very rubbed lion passant (facing right) and a gothic letter G. These are all consistent with Gorham silver marks of 1890. This box is in very good condition with only a few teeny dents around and 1 flat dent to the front. It would be perfect for a few small pieces of jewelry, pills, ear plugs or .... recreational paraphernalia. Or simply to collect and admire!
Size: 1-11/16 inches diameter, 5/8 inches tall.
