SHREVE & CO Sterling POWDER BOX Jar & Puff
click for an even bigger image



This is an elegant powder or puff box jar complete with a lovely puff. The box and handle of the puff are sterling silver. The jar is marked Shreve & Co. The puff has repousse flowers for design that looks like it may be Gorham but is hard to make out. The box is round bulbous with a smooth design and is monogramed on the lid with a very fancy DD. The mark on the bottom is 'Geo. C. Shreve & Co., San Francisco, STERLING' and a mark with a bee insect. It measures about 2 3/4 inches tall and is about 3 1/2 inches in diameter at its widest. The condition is very good to excellent overall with a few small, black spots on the finish and a few dents, one which is about 3/4 inch long but looks like it could be taken out by working it from the inside carefully. The finish is bright and shiny. This is a terrific piece to add to any vanity or Shreve & Co. silver collection!
