Description

A masterpiece of engraving.  A nineteenth-century silver spectacles case with superb and abundant engraving that  includes hunting scenes. Likely French in origin and second half of the 19th-century in date. Length: 5.5″; width 1.13″; height .25″–all approx. Unmarked but guaranteed to be 800 silver at the very least in keeping with Continental practice. The spectacles may not be original to the case and there is a tiny chip in the corner of one lens. The case has no condition issues.
