A superb unusual and rare solid silver Sovereign Case in a square shape. The case is a lovely plain polished silver with no engravings or embossing. When opened a spring loaded compartment is revealed which works faultlessly. There is a loop at the top.
The underneath of the lid bears clear hallmarks for the Birmingham Assay office with a date mark for 1902 along with the Lion Passant indicating the finest sterling silver and maker's marks for the silversmith: PJH. Partial marks are also visible on the sovereign compartment frame.
A rare and collectable sovereign case.
Condition: This sovereign case is in great antique condition. There is one tiny pin prick dent on one side next to the top and the underside of the lid shows some very light rippling, hardly noticeable which we mention these for accuracy only - please see images.
