Steppes Hill Farm Antiques Newsletter #107 - August 2020

Perhaps not strictly pairs, but certainly good Bedfellows






New arrivals this month include the above associated items which I have avoided describing as "pairs", but I think it is fair to say that in both cases one piece is 'en suite' to the other and they create agreeable sets.

The first duo are a
very fine quality early 20th century German silver and enamel Cigarette Case and matching Vesta Case, both pieces with beautifully painted enamel scenes depicting a racehorse with jockey up. The Cigarette Case of rounded rectangular form with sprung hinged opening mechanism and silver gilt interior, the reverse engraved with the owners initials - "V.G". The Vesta Case with a similar monogram to the reverse and a sprung flip-top lid with cabochon ruby thumb piece and a gilded interior. Both by Louis Kuppenheim, Pforzheim, Germany c1924. (The Cigarette Case has the Kuppenheim mark used c1912-24 and the Vesta has the c1924-30 mark). Click here to view on the web site.

The second two were both made by the renowned mid 19th century Birmingham silver box maker, Nathaniel Mills, and both are dated 1840. A large 'Castle-Top' Table Snuff Box and matching Vinaigrette, they depict a view of the south eastern aspect of York Minster Cathedral, raised in high relief on a matt background (the more frequently encountered view is taken from the south west). Both have engine turned sides with raised foliate chased borders and silver gilt interiors.

The Snuff box can be viewed here, and the Vinaigrette by clicking here.
