Gold snuff box / tabatiere and its hallmarks

I do agree and most of us were deceived by de letter “V” because the book “Gold stempel aus aller Welt” by Jan Divis points us to Valdemarsvik. The engine turning technique is an old technique. In the 1700’s it was adopted for meta...

Re: German unknown maker's mark of IP

Thanks I think, according to Tardy page 47; this city mark of Stuttgart has been used between 1700/60. The box is a good example of rococo style chased work and bright cut engraving.
I do hope we can find the name of the silversmith with the maker’s mark IP

Thanks all of you, under the wrappings of the internal pieces is air, hollow.
The wrappings are stiff and hard, like sand paper and reach to the bottom of the etui. The internal piece without the silver tip has traces of sealing wax.

Regards,
