Heavy Vintage Portuguese 833 Silver Drinking Dancing Pub Scene Trinket Box
Presented is a vintage, Portuguese silver box made around the early to mid 20th century. This piece is extremely heavy weight for its size! This could be used as a vanity, trinket, jewelry, pill or makeup box. The sides and lid are hand chased with highly raised and detailed decorations. The sides of the box have a band of leaves and scrolls over a stippled background. The lid depicts a very festive pub or countryside scene of a group of people dancing and playing instruments.
The underside bears the Portuguese 833 purity silver mark.
This piece is in excellent overall condition and the designs are crisp. There is a tiny bit of wiggle to the lid, but the lid is so heavy that is closes tight to the body.
Dimensions: 2 5/8 by 4 inches and 1 1/4 inches tall.
Weight: 243 grams or 8.5 ounces.
