A stylish fully hallmarked high grade .950 silver and gold plated cigarette or business card case. This piece was made by Georges Malneux, who was highly regarded. He was active from 1914 to 1924. Both the lid & base have the maker's mark & the crab mark too. The mark of Georges Malneux - 'un mortier lançant une fusée, une étoile au-dessous' (a mortar launching a rocket, a star below). The lid & base have the most elegant engine turned designs with rose gold & 9 ct yellow gold plated bands. This high quality case has a sapphire cabochon thumb catch which operates a spring loaded catch. Push the cabochon & the case glides open to reveal a richly gilded case. The sapphire cabochon is dark blue. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. Malneux was not active for long & so it is hard to find pieces made by him. Ideal for small business cards, as bespoke cards are available online. Measures 8.3 cm X 5.7 cm & weighs 69.4 grams.
