Description


These exceptional George V cast sterling silver menu holders have been realistically modelled in the form of the classic 17th century puppet characters Punch and Judy*.


Each cast silver figure is embellished with details reproducing the characters period attire and anatomical features; the Judy character is holding their baby in her arms.


These exceptional examples of antique silver are fitted with plain circular supports to the posterior surfaces.


Each character surmounds a plain hallmarked circular plateaued base.


These exceptional examples of antique silver are the finest of their type you could hope to acquire.


* Mr Pulcinella Punch and his wife Judy re-enact comical classic tales incorporating a wide range of 'guest' characters; many of these characters fall victim to the violent nature of Mr Punch's club. The enacted story typically involves Punch behaving foolishly, struggling with his wife Judy and the baby, all triumpant over the law whilst incorporating classic jokes and songs.
