Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
What a very nice vanity gold box or cylindrical snuff box. I am quite sure that it will catch the eyes of many collectors should it be put up for sale. These small boxes are collectors item and a sought after. The fact that it is made by Tiffany and the material is gold makes it even more of a collectors item. And also the weight (278 grams of 18 kt gold) and the pureness of the gold adds to the value of the little box.
The provenance of the pill box is interesting however probably mainly to the American collector. Nevertheless it is always important when you can trace an items history.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised objects of vertue auction, where I believe the Tifafny pill box has the best chance of realising its fullest potential.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
