Austrian 900 Silver and Tortoise Shell Pill Box

A lovely miniature hand chased silver pill box made with tortoise shell and 900 silver in Austria. The box measures 1-1/4 inches by 7/8 of an inch and is 3/8 of an inch tall. The main structural aspects of this pill box are made in silver whereas the lid and the base are made from a beautiful sliver of tortoise shell, with nice blonde and orange tones. The tortoise shell has a soft polish, and the pill box has a nice feel to it. Perfect for carrying around, or also works great to hold small jewelry. When held to the light the box has a nice glow to it. The box is solid with no scratches and is in great condition. Opens and closes tight perfectly keeping small items safe. The silver hand chased work has a a repeating curling foliage pattern and crosshatching details that meets the silver all the way to the edge where the tortoise shell begins. It is really splendid work with great precision. The side of the lid has a makers mark J.S. and a silver hallmark- the bird head and the number 2 that stands for 900 silver, and the w that is the Vienna mark after 1922. The silver mark of 900 is also visible on the side of the lid. Circa 1920s.
