A vintage, possibly antique, small white metal ribbed or gadrooned round box with mirror insert to lid and gilded interior to the base.
We are not sure for what use this item was originally intended. The mirror in the lid suggests a patch box, but the gilded interior and the design of the lid suggests a snuff box. Whatever its intended use, it probably could be used for a myriad other things.
We have described the metal construction as “white metal” but it could be silver or silver plate. It has not been tested but behaves like both.
The box is structurally sound, but on closer inspection, there is a tiny split to the hinge (which we have tried to show in the photographs with limited success). The item has been cleaned, but benefit from further cleaning.
The box measures approximately 1.5in in diameter at its widest part and stands just under 1in high. No visible makers marks. Weighs around 60g.
