gold colour on the inside and sterling silver, not magnetic so pretty sure it's solid silver. What is it? think it's antique as been passed down to me.

Hi,
It`s a pillbox.No appraisals here.
Are there any marks ? Show us, please.
Non magnetic does not mean it`s silver. Marks will tell if there are any.
Regards

Close up images of those marks would help.

Hi,
Have cropped and enlarged your image with the marks.
Looks like The Thomae Co.(maker`s mark on the right) Attleboro, Mass (USA).
Take a look and compare here:
