* Built on a fresh site in the early 18th century, Duff House is one of the grandest country homes in Scotland; located north of Aberdeen and east of Inverness. This building, commissioned by William Duff, Lord Braco, is considered an Adam masterpiece and can be considered, including its extensive grounds/estate, one of the most significant buildings in the North.


Date: 1923

This antique sterling silver sovereign case is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The engraved and engine turned decoration is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the interior of the cover have wear, in keeping with age, but remain legible.

The part hallmarks to the sprung sovereign receiver are very clear and the hallmarks to the ring loop attachment have wear in keeping with age and due to their location.


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