DESCRIPTION: A beautiful octagonal pill (or snuff) box, the top with silver filigree wire work around inset coal stones forming the shape of a five-petal flower. The box itself is silver over copper and on the inside is stamped “Made in China.” Amazingly, the original Frost Bros. retail tag remains on the inside. Frost Brothers was a high-fashion retail store based in San Antonio, Texas, that opened in 1917 and went out of business in 1988. This box dates from C. 1920 to 1945 (Republic Period), and is in very good condition with minor wear; hinge and clasp work perfectly. DIMENSIONS: 1 ¼” diameter. JO58 $170.00
