An uncommonly rare 19th century Dutch horn pill silverer complete with antique silvered pills.

This is larger than most of the English boxwood pill silverers with a diameter of 10.5 cm. The horn has been carved with concentric lines and in conjunction with the rich background gold colouring (either the original colour, or possibly due to the earlier use of gold powder) contrasting with the blackened silver oxide the overall appearance is stunning.
