About the Item

A superb late Victorian playing card box made from English sterling silver fully hallmarked for Birmingham 1899; the makers mark is also present for the well renowned English silversmith, Levi, and Salaman. The box retains the two heavy beveled glass panels to the top with one card below depicting Elizabeth 1 "Queen 1558-1603". The other depicts "Edward The Black Prince" (Edward of Woodstock, known to history as the Black Prince, was the eldest son of King Edward III of England, and thus the heir to the English throne. He died before his father and so never became King). The original leather interior is intact and there are two packs of cards inside. Excellent condition with minor wear commensurate with age. Measures: 5 5/8" x 4 1/8" x 1 5/8". Item ID: 40122 Free Worldwide Registered Airmail Directly From London, England.
