An absolutely gorgeous, nineteenth century solid silver hallmarked (we believe to be Dutch or possibly French) large, ornate hinged heart pendant or pill box with beautifully embossed repousse work on both the front & back, to include – a winged angel face, an un-monogrammed cartouche and a crown pediment composed of reticulated & embossed leaves. It measures an impressive 3-5/16” high overall (to the top of the ring) x 2-3/8” wide x 7/8” deep and weighs 42.8 grams. The heart is hinged on the back and opens to reveal a compartment which could be used as a pill box. There is a touchmark/hallmark on the front rim (worn from age & use) which appears to be a stylized leaf (?) and a sideways letter G (see close-up). The condition is excellent with no dings, bends, breaks, touch-ups or repairs, only light surface wear to the patina from gentle use. Very fine quality and beautifully made with lovely detail work. A fabulous antique silver box that’s a pendant which can be worn around the neck. It’s fresh from a home on Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore.
