Hi,
Two small rectangular mark on the lid are French ``weevil`` import marks for silver minimum 800 fineness, used 1893-1984.

Good Choice Trev, but .......... not quite the same
One of the two is false / pseudo in my opinion.

Hi members
This box is not Guilloche enamel,It may be enamel painted, Guilloche enamel is when the base under the enamel is engine turned with a intricate design and then enameled so that the engine turned base can be seen through the (clear) enamel.I am not sure about the marks,but I agree with Dendriet that the marks might not be right, also the quality of the painting and the colours do not look Austria or German to me.
Kind Regards Guido.
