Description


This fine antique Edwardian English sterling silver vesta case has a plain rectangular form.


The body of the case is embellished with a fine and impressive painted enamel panel depicting eight foxhounds sitting and waiting in anticipation; this is a highly sought after and collectable scene.


The case is fitted with a plain hallmarked sprung hinge cover to one end and has a serrated panel/match striker to the other.


The posterior surface and sides of the case are plain and unembellished.


This impressive vesta case was crafted in Chester by the renowned silversmith Sampson Mordan & Co Ltd.


Date: 1905

Condition


This antique vesta case is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

There is some surface wear in keeping with age; this does not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the piece.

The enamel panel is in perfect condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the side of the case and part hallmarks to the interior of the cover are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique Edwardian silverware.
