Victorian hallmarked solid silver Heart shaped jewellery box or pill box. Full Birmingham hallmark with the date letter for 1890 and the makers mark for Adie & Lovekin Ltd, Frederick Street, Birmingham.

Both are clean and crisp not worn as you might expect at this age. The inside is beautifully gilded and hinged. Large enough to hold several rings and pairs of earrings. The weight is 42.8 grams. Happy to answer any questions.
Stands 1 7/16 inches 3.8 cm tall, 2 7/8 inches 7.2 cm in long and 1 7/8 inches 3.8 cm wide.
