800/1000 silver, 16 cm, 200 g, in good condition with slight signs of wear

Silver incense boat embossed by hand, with original vintage patina. Southern Italy, late 18th century.
On the top is a coat of arms composed of a shield decorated with arabesques, surmounted by a crown and containing a lion surrounded by three stars. Under the lion, but still inside the shield, there are two engraved letters : “P” and “L”, perhaps the owner’s initials. The swinging lid is embossed with the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The lower part has a ribbed decoration.
There is no purity mark or mark of the artist, who is therefore unknown. Its origin, however, confirms that it belonged to a noble Messina family.
In good condition, with minor signs of wear.
Length 16 cm, width 7.5 cm, height 9 cm, weight 220 g. The metal has been tested by an expert and is 800/1000 silver.
