Antique Art Nouveau French Mistletoe Floral Silver Box

I found this silver pill box on my last trip to Paris. I was asked what on earth I would use it for. My rebuttal was fairly informative as there are many things to be put inside tiny boxes. I listed off the obvious things, pills, earrings, love notes, matches, and then I added rings, that extra button to the cashmere sweater I treasure oh so much, even chocolates from the chocolatier, who was just down the road from where I now stood arguing my convincing position. Now that I’m home again and have tested out this lovely box, I can tell you that les petites truffles avec café fit perfectly inside this vessel. The best part? Nobody but me will be sneaking my chocolates.

This antique Art Nouveau sterling silver snuff box was handcrafted in France around 1890. It features a repoussed mistletoe motif on the front lid. This rectangular piece measures 17.3 x 63.9 x 45.2 mm and it weighs 29.6 grams. It has been acid tested. It bears the French boards head silver fineness mark.

Hide your secrets inside this fabulous silver box as it’s a treasure chest that’s all your own.
