    Size approximately 1 inch length, 1 inch in width approximately and 32 grams in weight. In lovely antique condition in line with its age and usage. It has a lovely patina and has not been over polished.

    Probably a pill box but as the lid is a screw top it may be an ointment or oil container given the silversmiths speciality and the gilding on the interior.
