Vintage Burmese Paung Silver Repousse Wood Lined Jewellery / Cigar Box c1930 (Code 1387)
An early 20th century silver box with repousse work. It comes from Burma (now Myanmar) and unusually it has the town of manufacture, Paung, impressed to the underside along with the silver grade (900) and a crown mark. At this size it could have had multiple uses such as for cigars, as a jewellery box or as a small desk tidy. It is hinged along the length of the back and it is a friction fit close. The box has repousse panels in the Burmese style and is wood lined. A fine looking piece and fine to use.
Light wear, hinge and closing all work fine. The odd slight dent, nothing significant.
