This delicate article is an antique sterling-silver pillbox, a functional piece full of beauty and charm. The pillbox comes from Germany and dates from the 19th century. It is composed by two pieces connected by a hinge: both bear a lovely embossed decoration with leaves and flowery fringes. The top piece also shows a nice romantic scene with all the evocative power of the German romanticism. It depicts a couple dressed in the periods fashion who are sitting under a tree. At the feet of the gentleman, who is playing a bagpipe, a lute lies. The scene is surrounded by a circular fringe that frames it with style. At the center of the pillboxs second piece there is a hallmark and a number (the silver proportion). Original and with a deep evocative power, this romantic silver pillbox is perfect to decorate an elegant vanity. Measurements: Width: 3.5 in / 9 cm. Depth: 2.7 in / 7 cm.
