These exceptional antique Victorian sterling ashtrays have a plain circular form.
The surface of each piece is plain and embellished with an impressive cast sterling silver model of a fox.
Each fox is ornamented with details replicating the mammal's anatomical features and fur.
The raised rounded sides of each dish/ashtray bears two semi-circular indentations to the rim.
These versatile examples of Victorian silverware were crafted as ash trays, however, by virtue of their size they could be utilised as bon bon or sweet meat dishes.
