Silver and Flatware/Round silver pocket box


I have acquired a small round box in the size/shape of a pocket watch. The markings are worn, but it appears to be Swedish (3 crowns), dated 1868 (O5) with the initials of AIB.  I was told it was buy Anders Jacob Borjeson but I cannot find anything on him. Are you familiar with his work?  Do you know a good source for Swedish silver?

Thank you!


I am not familiar with his work. You may get some basic info at They have compiled info regarding silver from some countries.

Also, do a Google search on "Swedish silver marks". A few interesting articles pop up.

Sorry I could not help.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
