A very well made unusualsterling silver pill / snuff box. It is hallmarked with the 900 standard markonly. I suspect it is Arabic most likely North African. It dates to the early to mid 20 th century. It has an unusual sarcophagus shape with the lid being decorated with numerous fine studs. It is in perfect condition being free from dings splits holes and repairs. The inside is clean and the lid fastens tight forming a good seal. It measures a touch over 2 inches (5.2cms) long by 7/8ths (2.2cms) across by approx. 0.75 inches tall and weighs 26 grams. A well made unusual piece.
