Antique Victorian Sterling Silver Vesta Case by Samuel M Levi

About

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Victorian English sterling silver vesta case in the form of a Punch's dog; an addition to our diverse smoking related silverware collection. This Fine antique Victorian sterling silver vesta case is realistically modelled in the form of a Punch's* dog, Toby. The surface of this Victorian vesta case is embellished with embossed and chased decoration reproducing the Fine details of the dog's anatomical features and fur. The canine character is dressed in a wide rimmed hat with a feather to the anterior surface, in addition to a jesters collar. The ornamentation to the vesta case continues to the original shaped spring hinged cover. There is an integrated serrated panel/match striker to the underside of the hind quarters. Mr Punch is a pertinent character in the traditional British seaside hand-puppet show Punch and Judy. Mr Pulcinella Punch and his wife Judy re-enact comical Classic tales incorporating a wide range of 'guest' characters: the Constable, Joey the clown, the skeleton, Toby the dog etc. Many of these characters fall victim to the violent nature of Mr Punch's club. Condition This antique Victorian vesta case is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition. The embossed and chased decoration is very sharp. Full hallmarks struck to the sleeve of the body are all very clear. Dimensions Length 6.3cm/2.5" Width 3cm/1.2" Depth 1.5cm/0.6" Weight 0.7 troy ounce/20.8g Maker: Samuel M Levi Date: 1890 Origin: Birmingham, England Video: A video of this Fine piece is available upon request. Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
