Description


This exceptional antique George V sterling silver table lighter has a circular rounded form onto a plain circular spreading foot.


The surface of this impressive lighter has a planished finish in the Arts and Crafts style.


The upper portion of the body is encircled with an applied border illustrating the phrase 'There is no herb like it under the canopy of heaven'*; this text has been created using a characteristic typeface style for the Arts and Crafts movement.


The silver table lighter retains the original hallmarked push fit cover and associated taper pin surmounted with an impressive Arts and Crafts elevated ball style finial.


This antique table lighter is fitted with a large rounded C shaped handle with bifurcating scrolling upper terminal.


This impressive cigarette/cigar table lighter was crafted by the collectable silversmith Albert Edward Jones.


* This quote is taken from the book Westward Ho, written by Charles Kingsley in 1855. The full quote reads: "When all things were made, none was made better than Tobacco. A lone man's companion, a hungry man's food, a sad man's cordial, a wakeful man's sleep, and a chilly man's fire, there's no herb like unto it under the canopy of heaven"


Date: 1915

Condition


This impressive antique silver table lighter is a very good gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.
