Mexico Sterling Pill Box with Amethyst and Alligator Clip
This vintage sterling silver pill or snuff box from Mexico is a cut above with the unusual addition of a sterling silver chain ending in an alligator clip. A nice touch to prevent the loss of the box from slipping out of a pocket. The box measures 1 3/4 by 1 1/4" and is 1/2" tall. The chain is 3 1/2" long including the clip. It is marked Mexico Silver. The box is in great condition, the hinged lid fits securely and the alligator clip is tight. There is light normal surface wear that could be easily polished, but I have left as is.
