Modern 950 silver box inset with ancient Roman coins. Made by Bulgari in Italy in 1972. Straight sides, each with large gilt diaper inset with a follis (a type of bronze coin) from the reign of Emperor Maxentius, one of the last pagan emperors, who ruled from 306-312 AD. Striking 1970s design evocative of decline and decadence. Fully marked including post-1967 Italian marks, year, and phrase “Impero Romano / Massenzio / 306 – 312 / Follis”. Excellent condition.

Dimensions: H 5 x W 4 3/4 x D 4 3/4 in. Heavy weight: 38.5 troy ounces. #BU122
