Presented for your consideration, a ROBUST and ADORABLE Victorian Sterling Silver CIGARETTE CASE, decorated on its frontal cover with a SUPERB ENAMEL depicting a beautiful dog, probably a mixed Saint Bernard, in an extremely adorable sweet attitude. The enamel quality is superb, the sweet dog seems almost alive to the point that it seems to be three-dimensioned. As can be appreciated in the pictures, the enamel is in very good conditions, no dings, cracks or hairlines anywhere, excepting for a small restauration at the bottom right corner which of course does not affect the dog's face at all.
Both covers are fully hallmarked inside, the back cover shows also its maker's name, Bishton & Fletcher from Birmimgham, and its hallmarks date it to 1897, the last years of the well known Victorian period.

MEASURES: 88 X 59mm (not including its pusher)
ESTIMATED AGE & MAKER'S HALLMARKS: 1897, B&F Bishton & Fletcher,

GENERAL CONDITIONS: very good general conditions, there is a little restauration in white enamel at the edge corner of the enamel, please refer to the pictures.
