My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. This box is a repousse silver plated glove box made by Simpson Hall Miller of Wallingford, CT about 1898- 1900. This box with a dent has a value of about $30.00 because it is metal coated with a thin wash of liquid silver (silver plate) and not solid silver.
It is hard to tell from the picture if it is dark from tarnish or more grey from the plating being gone. In either case, you will know once you polish it. The best stuff to use is Wright's Silver Cream (about 4.00 at the grocery store or Walmart in the cleaning supplies isle). It is very easy to use and there are no toxic fumes. Good luck!
