Description


These exceptional Victorian cast sterling silver menu holders have been realistically modelled in the form of hunters, each on horseback jumping a fence.


The character to one menu holder is dressed in formal attire, including a top hat and accompanied by a hunting hound.


The second hunter is wearing a rounded cap and holding in his hand a riding crop.


The ornamentation to each card/menu holder incorporates further foliate and terrain textures; these holders are highly desirable due to the decorative hunting scenes.


These menu card holders in silver are fitted with hallmarked plain hinged wire loop supports to the posterior surfaces.


The reverse surface of each holder bears the registration number 'Rd 230382'.
