The body of this Tiffany gold box is embellished with a naturalistic texture replicating the details of the shell's grain.

The hallmarks to the interior of this box include:

Makers mark: Tiffany (Tiffany & Co)

Gold quality/purity mark: 18k (18 carat, 750/1000)

Designer's mark: Schlumberger (Jean Schlumberger*)


This versatile box could be used for a multitude of functions, including a pill box or small trinket box.


* Jean Michel Schlumberger is a revered French jewellery designer who joined Tiffany & Co in 1956 at the request of Walter Hoving. Schlumberger gained a reputation for his remarkable interpretations of organic forms, in particular sea creatures. Due to his reputation and highly noble clientele, Tiffany & Co allowed him to sign his work; this made him one of four designs given this respected permission.
