First mark is absolutely HH in rectangle. Second mark is a cross? with small lobes at base. Don't know if matters but probably snuff box not pill box. Assays approx. 800 silver.

The second mark is a Dutch 833 standard mark, used on small items from 1814-1953.

Hi Danna, It's hard to tell from the photo, but it's looks like one of two Schoonhoven makers, probably Hermanus Hartman, dating from somewhere between 1889 to 1924. (Do I get a commission when you sell this?)
