The design is sophisticated Louis XVI style with berried laurel swag and acanthus leaf borders. The hinged lid has casted finial in the shape of berries underneath scrolled acanthus.
Hallmarked French Minerva No.1 Titre mark on each part, which guaranteed .950 purity solid sterling silver, used in Paris since 1838. Maker's mark of Henin & Cie, 33 rue des Archives, active since 1875.
