Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver cigarette case has a plain square form with rounded corners.


This silver and enamel cigarette case has a subtly curved form proffering a comfortable fit in the majority of pockets.


The anterior cover is embellished with an exceptional enamel panel depicting a beach scene with a woman in period attire altering her garter.


The enamel scene is signed to the lower corner with the initials 'CF'.


The rounded sides and posterior cover of this cigarette case are plain and unembellished.


This case is fitted with a push fit catch, which when released reveals two hinged compartments.


This impressive example of Victorian silverware retains the original gilt interior.


The hallmarked interior of the case bears the retailer’s mark Frank Hyams Ld, 128 New Bond St, London, W.


Antique cases such as this, crafted in English hallmarked silver, are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.


Date: 1888

Condition

There is some minor surface scratches to the anterior surface, in keeping with age; this does not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the case.

The part hallmarks to the surface of the anterior cover have wear in keeping with age and location.
