A Swedish guilloche enamel and 935 silver gilt patch or pill box of circular form with a fitted lid. The box would make a lovely decorative accessory for a desk, nightstand, or vanity. The top of the box is decorated with a field of lilac enamel over a dynamic, engine-turned pattern of wavy lines radiating outward from the center. The side rim of the lid has a beaded edge and the outer sides of the box feature an engine-turned diamond pattern. The box and underside of the lid retain their original gold wash finishes. The rim of the lid and the box interior are both stamped with a three crown mark of the Swedish coat of arms in a trefoil shape alongside the letter "S" inside a hexagon, referring to a minimum silver standard. The interior is also marked "935" indicating the silver fineness or purity is just over the sterling standard of .925. The box dates circa 1920 and measures 1.63 in. diameter and is 0.75 in. height very good condition overall; the enamel is undamaged and the gilt surfaces show some wear from handling and age.
