SLD mark on Trinket Box

Postby robert12 » Tue Apr 28, 2015 12:12 pm

Hi, Any ideas please on this pretty trinket box of 7cm dia.
Only the SLD mark on the base, no marks at all on the removable top.
Fairly sure it is of Scottish origins and silver.

Hi all,

I have had a suggestion from a learned colleague that the box is probably continental with some age and the stone added later, which makes sense as the only part that seems to suggest Scottish is the stone, maybe the stone is a distraction and this should just be viewed and judged as a blank box. Has anyone got an idea on this one ?

Hi Robert,

I'll move the topic to the 'Other Countries' section, to see if we have any joy there.
