Description


This fine provincial made antique George VI set consists of a lighter and two associated ashtrays.


The fine antique sterling silver ashtrays have an asymmetrical, octagonal form in the Art Deco style.


Each ashtray is ornamented with engine turned and diagonal line tooled decoration to the angular shaped rims.


The rims also incorporate two diagonally opposed curved cigarette receivers.


Each ashtray has a plain circular well.


The sterling silver 'SUPERSNAP' automatic cigarette lighter has a rectangular form with rounded sides.


The anterior and posterior faces are embellished with engine turned decoration in a similar design to that displayed on the ashtrays.


The rounded sides of the lighter are plain and unembellished.


This fine lighter is fitted with a plain shaped push down button and snuffer cap to the upper surface.


The 'SUPERSNAP' trade mark and 'made in England' are clearly visible to the underside of the lighter, between the flint screw and two filler screws.


This fine antique set is fitted to the original hinged leatherette box, with a satin lined interior which displays the retailer's mark 'Walker & Hall, Sheffield, London'.


Date: 1939

Condition


The pieces of this set are a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each ashtray are all very clear.

The maker's hallmark and sterling mark struck to the rounded side of the lighter are rubbed but legible.

The presentation box is in excellent condition in keeping with age.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these pieces of antique silverware.
