Subject:Chinese Silver Box
Posted By: Peter Fri, Jul 16, 2021 IP: 91.141.34.19

Hello. I'd be grateful if anyone were able to suggest the approximate age - and if possible, the maker - of this presumably Chinese silver lidded box.
Any info whatsoever will be much appreciated.

It's marked 900. Which is 900/1000 fine silver ratio mark.
It's not Chinese but made by or for the Arabic market.
Looks to be early 20th.

I believe this is a Persian (Iran) silver box. Probably early to mid-20th century.
