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