Condition


This antique sterling silver sovereign case / vesta case is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the rim of the vesta case in addition to part hallmarks to the interior of each cover, the sprung sovereign receiver and ring loop attachment are all very clear.

The maker's mark has been overstruck, which was not an unusual practice, but remains very clear and distinguishable.


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