Hello I came across this little box which is lined with turned wood inside and also inside the lid which screws off.It is marked on bottom Silver and 925 would like some help in maybe a date or any info on what it was used for. Would it be possible to guess a period or date from the Grapes design on it any help greatly appreciated I posted this question on Photographing Silver by mistake earlier. .

If it's marked 925 it's probably American or Latin American....try posting the link to the picture as a "hot link" because I could not get it to open by tying your link, or just send me the picture direct at royvictor@cox.net
