Vintage Iguala Mexico Sterling Silver and Abalone Inlay Hinged Pill Box - Eagle 2 - Signed #d133
This handmade Mexican pill box is comprised of sterling silver and inlaid abalone. The box is rectangular in shape and the top of the lid has been beautifully inlaid with colorful abalone shell. The lid is hinged and secures with a hook and knob closure in the front. The edges of the lid have a beautiful raised rope detail that adds great visual interest to the piece. The abalone shell inlay is one glorious piece that exhibits a rainbow of colors and a fabulous iridescence. The box can be used to store pills to take along in a purse or could hold jewelry on a bedside table. It's a delightful little box!

The box measures about 1 1/4 inches wide, 1 inch deep and weighs 7.3 grams. It is signed and hallmarked "Iguala 925 Mexico" in a circle around the artist's initials that appear to be "GGA" and with an Eagle 2 mark on the bottom of the box. I was unable to identify the artist's name.

This is a wonderful handcrafted box that could be used to hold pills, jewelry or tiny trinkets. It would make a marvelous gift for the person who appreciates Mexican silver. The box is in excellent vintage condition, but being handmade, it will exhibit irregularities in construction that would not be found in a machine-made piece. It's a marvelous example of Mexican silver artistry!
