      It measures 6 inches long and 2 3/4 inches wide

      Thanks! Too large for a snuff box. Deciphering the engravings would be "enlightening". Game piece storage? Deities floating around? Lounging by a pool?

      Looks Dutch. Trying to decipher. Let`s take some time.

      "Een Trouw Hart Is een Kroon der Weerelt"
      In Dutch it means :
      "A Faithful Heart Is a Crown of the world"
      More likely a wedding gift, token of love.

      this must be old using the the word der = conjunction of van and de en and weerelt with 2 ee and and a- t instead of wereld

      I so appreciate the the info I've been receiving! I also keep investigating, and this may be 18th century? Thanks you !

      you noticed there is a lot of in the aloid maybe from someone from the lower social stratum

      i am not an expert , but i cant be far off , databanks dont, lie

    10. apostata apostata, 2 months ago
      addendum lot of zinc in the aloid

      Knowledge is priceless and I'm happy for all I am getting!

      addendum social antroposophical meaning

      Tobacco boxes have been collected for almost 300 years. Yet little has been published about these fascinating objects, which played an important role in social interaction in the Netherlands. The owner's status could be read from the material a box was made of. Copper, in particular, was commonplace when stopping a pipe that was first raised to fashion by the wealthy and later became literally popular with the entire population. With a precious silver box, embossed, beautifully engraved or combined with other materials, you could show that you were socially successful. Skippers, captains, merchants, estate owners commissioned the most beautiful combination. Bible and mythology, the history of the country or of your city, but also your personal situation could be the inspiration for artistic translation

      its the same priciple of the golden age mirror hype ( showcase display) = pronkkamer the same with cutlery
