An interesting item of beaten silver - the ladle with pouring lip, the whole item in excellent condition. Hallmarks for Sheffield 1927 clearly visible on underside of handle. Overall length 125mm.
Cut glass body with deep cut decoration. The HM silver top with snap-closed catch completely intact and a firm seal - a very high quality scent bottle or perhaps a vinaigrette.
Of traditional form, the rectangular box shape enclosing a glass ink bottle. The closure ensures a seal between the bottle neck and the cork preventing leakage. A push button closure and a secondary hinged hook to secure the lid for transit. The whole covered in grained green leather and in excellent condition.
Not often seen at this size, this horn is in remarkably good condition for its age - almost 200 years old. Some dings, of course but blows very well with a deeper tone than more modern horns. Swaine & Co. became Swaine & Adeney in 1834 so the engraved maker's details confirm its vintage. A worthy addition to any horn collection.
Not many Callow horns about these days, this example dating to approximately 1820 and with signs of use. Dings, of course but still rendering a deep tone when blown. The horn structure is sound with one slight split to the folded bell rim. A highly desirable horn, priced to reflect its condition.
ex Atheneum Club, these miniature carafe style water vessels specifically used for service with Whisky. In heavy, fine quality cut glass and showing little or no signs of wear, these items are rarely seen on the market. The price is for THE PAIR.
Often described as 'a nurses' buckle', this example in continental silver with elaborate relief decoration of tropical animals. In excellent condition and probably of around .800 silver.
From the heyday of foxhunting - pre WW1 - a good example of the traditional pattern purpose-made leather pouch for holding a pewter sandwich tin designed to be strapped to the saddle. Best quality leather work with stitching intact. A piece of Edwardian history.
An original example of the gilded metal grenade plate worn by other ranks on the full dress fur cap until 1914. In excellent condition with original reverse fittings intact.
Heavily cast, good quality silver plated plaid brooch of known pattern complete with fixing brooch pin to reverse. In excellent condition with minimal service wear.
