These exceptional vintage Elizabeth II cast sterling silver menu holders have individual figural forms.

The holders are individually embellished with cast ornamentation reproducing the details of the characters in their professions: these roles include a chimney sweep, a formally attired tailor, a lady selling flowers and multiple sales people.

One figure is carrying a sandwich-board which bears the engraved advertisement details 'Drury Lane - Vesta Tilley, Harry Champion' to one side and 'Drury Lane - Dan Leno, Marie Lloyd' to the other.

Each model surmounts an impressive irregular shaped base accented with an individually numbered mile marker 1-12.
