Description

This wonderful antique **German 800 silver hallmarked crescent moon and crown mark on the bottom of this hand-chased oval box would be a welcome addition to your desk top, coffee table, vanity or to hold your little valuables. This special piece is full of fabulous bows and flowers combined with lines and leaves. it is in very good vintage condition with a bit of wear from age and use and measures 4.0 inches long x 3.0 inches wide x 1.25 inches deep. **In 1884 a law was enacted making .800 the minimum national standard for silver in Germany. In 1886 the use of individual city marks was abolished and replaced by the national mark (reichsmark) of a crescent moon and crown mark (Halbmond und Krone) representing the entire German state. These marks became compulsory by 1888. The crown and crescent moon are used in conjunction with a maker’s mark and a decimal silver standard mark. • Don't forget--antiques and vintage are naturally eco-friendly and green, and are the ultimate in helping the environment.
