£6,950.00

A magnificent, fine and impressive, rare and large antique Edwardian English sterling silver and blackbuck antelope horn table lighter modelled in the form of a snake; an addition to our animal silverware and barware collection

SKU C8223

This magnificent and rare antique Edwardian sterling silver table lighter has been realistically modelled in the form of a slithering snake.


The large body of the snake is fitted with an impressive blackbuck antelope horn, creating an undulating ribbed formation.


This anterior portion of the cigar lighter is ornamented with a hallmarked sterling silver mount modelled in the form of a textured plinth supporting the snake's head embellished with chased decoration replicating the skin scales and anatomical features.


The snake's head retains the original bead eyes.


The anterior surface of this novelty silver snake lighter retains the original detachable hallmarked globular taper holder, securing with a screw fitment.


Date: 1901

This magnificent antique silver snake lighter is a superior gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the rim of the mount and part hallmarks to the taper holder shaft are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this magnificent Edwardian table lighter snake.
