This is a lovely vintage sterling silver pill box that is signed and numbered by the maker. Whimsical cherubs or angels top this vintage sterling silver pill box pendant. The hinged pill box has an added sturdy bail and was most likely meant to hang as a fob from a pocket watch or a necklace chain. The lid opens easily by pulling upward and closes tightly. The box measures approx. 1 1/8 inches in diameter x 1 3/8 inches with bail and 1/2 inch deep. The cherubs remind me of the famous painting by Sir Joshua Reynolds' - A Child’s Portrait in Different Views: ‘Angel’s Heads’.
This piece also might be great for storing a few rings, stud earrings, pills or other precious tiny things. Overall, this lovely box is in excellent condition.
