Measuring 5 1/2" long by 3 1/2" wide by 2" tall, and weighing 13.7 T. oz. total including the relatively minor value of the non-silver portion, this box is stamped on the underside, "Made in H*," "Tack Hing," "90% Silver," and "M."

Tack Hing is a well documented Chinese Export silver manufacturer with dates from the late 19th to early 20th centuries.

This piece is a cigar or cigarette box, with two wood lined compartments in the interior bottom and wood on the underside of the lid. The wood has a scent and may be camphor.

The exterior of the hinged top is engraved in a stylized harbor scene that includes a number of boats, a pagoda, a bridge, and hillsides in the background. The edges of the lid are beveled and have a lip for lifting. The remaining exterior surfaces are plain, with a brightly polished finish.

In excellent condition, this is free of dents, scuffs, or scratches. The wood is free of splits or chips. The lid fits snugly and the hinge is secure.
