Large Hallmarked Silver Business Card Case 1940s

£725.00

A rare fully hallmarked silver business card / cigarette case crafted in Arabian in the 1940s. Allegorical cases made from hallmarked silver are extremely rare. This piece is superb. As you can see the scene shows a woman offering a weary man something to drink. The engraving is very fine & the silversmith has rendered the clothes in such a way that they feel like they have the texture of garments. The area appears not to be dessert but quite lush with hills, vegetation & trees. Two charming ibis just to the left of the woman.

Push the thumb catch to open the case & the spring loaded catch ensures that the case glides open. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. An elastic strap is still in place. This large case easily has enough room for the largest business cards, credit cards & cigarettes too. As image six shows the case is fully hallmarked silver. The base is decorated with the most beautiful engraving. A very impressive gift. This solid silver cigarette / card case measures just over 4 1/2" X 3 1/4" & weighs 159 grams.
