1905 Edwardian Sterling Silver Pill Box/Toothpick Case with Raised Crest
This piece is special. Let me share what I know...
She's English sterling, from Birmingham, 1905. So an authentic example of Edwardian design.
She's chunky, with a lovely weight and that soft patina you only find in antique silver that's been used and loved. The push clasp and hinge are both in perfect condition.
When you open her up, the rectangular compartment is divided in half. Historically, most likely used for cigarette tips and wooden matches .
And today? I'd use her for toothpicks, as a lovely pill box, or a sentimental treasure chest filled with small pictures, locks of hair or even baby teeth.
Wear her as a pendant on a heavy sterling chain or a long strand of pearls you can double up.
She wants to make a statement, although she's not brash or loud. Just-- like said -- very special.
