newbie with silver headache

hi guys this is my very first post i have become very interested in collecting silver , i brought my first piece and having trouble identifying it … could anyone please help.

right im struggling to get pictures because the item is a tiny sterling silver pill box

i have identifyed tht 925 is sterling silver but i also have the makers initials which is MH in a rectangle …
i also really cant tell wat the other mark is it looks like a u ashape in a oval ??
and lastly i have a v in a square …
i will keep trying to get a picture it is proving impossible though …

the piece in general looks italian at a guess with roman coloumns a bowl of fruit on the lid , and the whole piece is oval shaped …

thank you guys

without a picture its hard to tell, hwever the ‘u’ shape in a oval sounds to me like an import mark. So id think it is foreign but until the pic is up its hard to help.
