Austrian Silver and Enamel Cigarette Case - Antique Circa 1910

Description


This exceptional antique Austrian silver cigarette case has a plain rectangular form with rounded corners.


The anterior cover of this antique cigarette case is embellished with an exceptional original enamel panel depicting a female holding a four-stringed instrument, with an engraved floral and foliate landscape to the background.


The posterior cover and rounded sides of this case are plain and unembellished.


Each cover features a plain rounded thumbpiece in addition to a hallmarked push fit catch, which when released reveals two hinged compartments.


This impressive example of continental silverware retains the original gilding to the interior of each cover.


The hallmarks struck to the interior of this luxury cigarette case include:

Maker's mark: G.A.S (Georg Adam Scheid*)

Silver quality/purity mark: Dog head**, 800 (.800, 800/1000)

Assay mark: Dog head - A (Vienna, Austria)


* Georg Adam Scheid is renowned for the high quality enamelling on silverware items, specialising in cigarette cases, powder boxes, stationary and toiletry sets, and jewellery.


** This mark was issued for small items from 1867-1922, rather than the Dianakopf mark; this mark, in addition to the style, determines the date of this piece as circa 1900.
