This is an Arts & Crafts cigarette case made c. the late 1800s. The case is fully hallmarked 800 silver. This composition of 800 silver lends itself to the creation of dark patina which is particularly pleasing on pieces of this genre. This patina can only improve with age and what a beautiful example this antique silver case is. On the lid and base three Centaurea in bloom with a bud on the lower right hand side. The simplicity and balance of the design so charming which is why this movement has such a following. Push the thumb catch to activate a spring loaded catch. The gilded interior showing the repoussage in reverse. The original gold elastic strap still in place. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. So often Arts & Crafts pieces have the appearance of primitive / medieval items and this is certainly so with this antique silver case. The case is in good condition. Measures 9 cm X 7.5 cm and weighs 68. grams.
