Cased antique Asprey cigarette case sterling silver cigarette cases 25th wedding anniversary gifts for her / him
The Asprey brand has a long established relationship with British royalty dating back to the 1800s when Queen Victoria awarded the first Royal Warrant. Since then Asprey has held a Royal Warrant for every British monarch and other foreign heads of state.
A superb fully hallmarked Asprey sterling silver cigarette case made by one of the most prestigious jewellers / jewelers in Great Britain, in the original leather clad and silk lined presentation box. It is so difficult to find cases from this maker and era in the original presentation cases. Images one and two show the lid and the third photograph is of the base. Understated, classy - a high quality accessory.
An impressive gift. The cigarette case is in excellent condition - the lid, base and sloped shoulders have an engine turned design of tiny diamond shapes. The case opens with ease by sliding the lid up slightly which triggers a spring loaded catch to open the lid. All clasps and hinges work perfectly.
As well as being a luxurious & stylish accessory the case is also functional having more than enough room for cigarettes, credit / business cards & money. The case is fully hallmarked London Assay Office & it is in excellent working order & condition. The inner case has excellent gilding & a gilded strap. Both the lid and base are fully hallmarked 'A & CO LTD, lion passant, leopard's head, date letter C showing that it is assayed sterling silver - London in 1938.
The leather clad presentation case is in remarkably good condition too.
This antique silver Asprey cigarette case measures 14 cm x 8.3 cm & weighs 240.9 gram
