A beautiful German silver and enamel snuff box depicting three birds on branches. The box is crafted from .935 purity silver (935/1000 parts pure silver) and features a fine machined finish and greek key border. The hinged lid of the box is inset with an enamelled plaque depicting colourful birds on a black background which are surrounded in a border of aqua and teal enamel. The piece likely dates to the 1920s and has German hallmarks to the inside rim of the bottom half of the box. An excellent piece for a snuff box collector or a beautiful object to hold a collection of tiny things like buttons or ancient coins.
