Art Nouveau silver vesta cases gifts for violin players / musicians antique silver wedding anniversary gifts
A rare & very beautiful fully hallmarked sterling silver vesta case in excellent condition. The front shows an elegant lady playing the violin, seated on a cloud. Her hair, features, robes & the cherubs are well executed & this is a charming antique. Made in France at the end of the 19th century / beginning of the twenty first century. The front also has in relief two love birds & cherubs reading from a musical score. The case is signed 'A L'. Just as much attention has been paid to the adornment of the back. Here we see a blank oval cartouche surrounded by flowers & foliage. On the clouds above three cherubs playing musical instruments. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. Image four is the maker's mark, the first letter looks like a U & then this is followed by a trident, as yet I have not discovered which silversmith made this piece.
A superb one of a kind gift.
This silver Art Nouveau vesta case measures 4.5 cm x 3.5 cm & weighs 23.4 grams.
