SPECTACULAR ANTIQUE C1910 AUSTRIAN STERLING SILVER & ENAMEL CIGARETTE CASE NR
Description

This is a listing for a spectacular antique circa 1910 Austrian .925 grade sterling silver and enamel cigarette case. The case measures 3 1/4 by 2 1/2 inches or 82 by 63 mm. The case is quite heavy for its size and weighs 5.17.

I've had quite a few enamel decorated cigarette cases but this by far is the most handsome. The entire cover of the case is an enameled scene of two lovers in an elaborate garden. The painting is beautifully done with the couple dressed in 18th century finery. She is holding a crown of flowers over his head. Next to her lies open sheet music. Beyond the lovers a storm brews in the background. They are surrounded by flowers. On either side of this painting is a sterling silver engraved spray of leaves.

The back of the case is beautiful deep cobalt enamel over a basse taille sunburst design (Basse Taille a French technique of engraving a design in silver before enameling over it). The inside of the case has a hinged arm for holding the earliest cigarettes which were smaller then the modern era cigarettes.

The inside of the case is in vermeil gold. One side of the interior is marked with an Austrian hallmark along with "STERLING SILVER MADE IN AUSTRIA".

The case is in really excellent condition with no enamel damage or restoration, there is the usual scuffing to the bottom of the case, minor. Please see the many photos of this very pretty an exceptional case.

There is . For additional interesting items please see my other items.
