A German silver square trinket box, maker's mark A F, Hanau
Stamped with pseudo silver marks, the lid embossed with musicians in period costume within a raised floral border, a flower and leaf-scroll frieze to the sides.
1st quarter 20th century
The silversmiths from Hanau used pseudo marks imitating those used in Germany and France from earlier centuries. I cannot find a record of this particular maker's mark but the other marks are similar to those used by Ludwig Neresheimer. There are other cancelled marks that you also show, so possibly this may have been retailed by Neresheimer. Their production and marketing of pieces like this continued well into the 20th Century and this looks to date from the early decades of that century rather than from the 19th century.
