Hoof and Sterling Silver Vesta Box - Antique Edwardian (1908)


An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Edwardian English sterling silver and hoof vesta box; an addition to our range of collectable silver cases

SKU A8631

This exceptional antique Edwardian sterling silver vesta box has been mounted onto a deer's hoof*.

This antique hoof vesta box is encompassed with a fine and impressive plain silver mount, fitted with a flush hinged cover to each of the two toes; the flush hinges indicate the high quality of the pieces.

The surface of the covers are embellished with the contemporary engraved inscription 'Hunthill' and '1903'

The posterior surface of this impressive Edwardian vesta case is ornamented with a hallmarked 'horseshoe' design, in addition to two serrated panels/match strikers.

* It can be determined this is a mature buck's hoof due to its size. The cloven hoof (otherwise known as a cleft, divided or split hoof) forms two toes and the intergidital cleft. The hard outer coating is called the hoof wall or horn; a supstance similar to the human fingernail.

Maker: W & G Neal

Date: 1908

This antique hoof vesta box is an exceptional gauge of silver, excellent quality and exceptional condition.

There is a slight suface opening to the top portion of the hoof, however it can still be considered to be in presentation condition.

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

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