Dear Mark,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. The apprised object is cloisonne round box probably made out of gilded silver. This pill box is stamped on his bottom. The hallmarks appear to be the Russian silver guarantee stamp and the city mark of Odessa in the shape of an orthodox cross. The weight is 121,4 grams.
There are especially for Russian silver very well made forgeries on the market. This piece is in very good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 1000 to 2000 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With best regards,
Georg
