Edwardian Hoof-Mounted Sterling Silver Smoking Compendium, Circa 1908

About

A stately Edwardian antique smoking compendium made circa 1908 by Robert Pringle & Sons. Four sterling silver ashtrays are set into four antique hooves. Mounted above are four graceful silver trays curved to rest a cigarette. The silver compartment houses matches and other smoking accoutrements. The silver-mounted glass striker that sits on top of the compartment was possibly a later addition and comfortably holds a selection of matches. Created by the London based jeweler and silversmith Robert Pringle & Sons. Robert Pringle began apprenticing as a jeweler at age 13 and later went on to found his own company in 1835. Active until 1967, the business expanded from jewelry to producing other metal work such as watches, silver mounted glassware, clocks, and commemorative pieces. Property from an East Coast Collector. The piece is in good decorative condition but is missing some securing pins and there are some cracks to the underside of the hooves.
