Scott Memorial Silver Card Case, Birmingham 1847 By Frederick Marsden For Sale

Scott Memorial Silver Card Case, Birmingham 1847 By Frederick Marsden

We are offering for sale a beautiful silver card case with an engraved scene depicting the Scott Memorial.

The Scott memorial is in Edinburgh and was erected in honour of one of Scotland's most loved novelists - Sir Walter Scott. This is a particularly fine scene with lots of attention to detail.

The background to this scene is a rich tapestry of engine turned designs with all manner of beautifully executed patterns amidst floral scrolls.This pattern is continued on the obverse side and looks fabulous. The hinged cover is in good order with very little play and the whole benefits from being in fine condition with just a barely seentiny ding to one corner (can just see in diagonal image bottom left corner), but no splits, repairs etc.

This case is a fine example from the castle top series of souvenir boxes produced for wealthy tourists soon after the advent of the railways in the UK.

Please view our specialist site for a further large selection of fine quality silver boxes including snuff, vinaigrettes and card cases by following the links on our about me page or find our contact details further down this page under the "Business Seller Information" section.

MEASUREMENTS:9.7cm (3.8") x 6.9cm (2.7") rectangular;69 grams weight.

MARKS: Full set of English hallmarks (guaranteeing Sterling 925 standard silver) for Birmingham 1847, made by Frederick Marsden.

CONDITION: Excellent.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any further questions. Good luck, Gary.
