Unhallmarked silver for ID if possible

Post by Swany » Fri Jan 12, 2018 3:17 pm

Out today 12-01-18, stubble field now defrosted but muddy, was walking 6" taller and half a stone heavier, using CTX and 17" coil, open screen.

Silver item is decorated and passed the foil test but have no idea, no hallmark.

Cheers guy's.

It looks like a later Victorian or Edwardian stamp box to me. I am surprised that there is no hallmark as it looks big enough to need one (over 7g I think).
