Vintage Italian Designer Sterling Silver Box Stamped Gucci - Montecatini 1959 (Code 2570)
A mid 20th century silver box. It is marked A.I.S Montecatini Maggio 1959. The Italian city of Montecatini hosts some international events including opera and it may be the date and location refers to some event of the time. Along with these marks it is also stamped Gucci and 925 for the Sterling grade of silver and a small lozenge mark which is difficult to make out.
The box is of rectangular form with rounded corners and could have many uses at this size included for cosmetic items. These pieces seem to be very scarce but I have found reference to two others which went through the art market in the last 5 years. It is very nicely made and a heavy gauge of silver.
Very good order for period, minor wear, light scratches and scuffs. A shallow indented mark to the underside
