Hammered Silver Box
We found a source for these beautiful handmade German Silver boxes only two or three years ago and they have been some of the most popular items in our catalog. The small American company that is designing these boxes and having them made in the Central Highlands region of Mexico by one single family is just now introducing boxes with the authentic hammered surface. Previous ones have had a smooth surface with tooled images.
The shape and size of this one is also new for us. With a hinged lid, it is large enough to tuck away many of the things that might end up on your desk or bedroom dresser, like writing utensils, jewelry, eyeglasses or a multitude of mementos. Nickel silver, or German silver as it is often called, does not tarnish like sterling or silver plate, but rather develops a nice luster giving it the look and feel of a vintage piece of silver. Use a cloth to remove dust and polish away fingerprints. A black velvet lining protects your items from scratches. Measures 11-3/4" x 1-7/8" x 4". Weighs 1 lb. 15 oz.
