It measures 3¼” (8.3cms) long and ½” (1.3cms) across the base. It weighs 5 grams.

The case carries a lovely repoussé design of thistles. The stems swirl elegantly and the leaves are delicately formed. The design is the same on both sides. The base is finished with leaves. At the top is the boar’s head, signifying 800-900 silver quality..

You pull on the plain top to reveal the empty interior.

In fine antique condition with just the smallest signs of age and use, this exquisite and very rare piece will arrive in a gift box.
