GORHAM Sterling Silver SNUFF BOX - SOLACE - c. 1891

This is a fabulous sterling silver snuff box by Gorham, c. 1891. The box has a repousse design on the lid reading "Solace". This box is pictured on p. 130 of Crosby's "Silver Novelties". The inside of the lid bears the Gorham mark together with date mark for 1891 and "Sterling". It is also engraved inside the "Compliments of John Anderson & Co.". John Anderson & Co. were tobacco and snuff manufacturers and importers of fine "segars" on Broadway in New York and "Solace" was one of their brands. The box measures 3 1/2" x 2 1/4" x 1/2" and has good weight (89.5 grams). It is in excellent condition with only a couple of tiny indentations that you have to look for.
