Antique Sterling Silver Vesta Case with Spaniel Dog - Solomon Blanckensee 1945 (Code 2390)
A late Art Deco Sterling silver vesta case by the Birmingham silversmith Solomon Blanckensee. It is of traditional shape with a striker set to the base and a suspension loop below the hinge. The front is set with a dog which appears to be a spaniel or similar. The dog has a small glass bead as an eye. The dog is fixed using rivets only visible to the interior and the wear suggests it is original to the period.
The hallmark is to the lip under the lid and this is for Birmingham 1945, the final year of WW2 and late Deco in period. The makers initials are also found here.
Normal age related wear with surface scratches and scuffs. Hinge is a little slack but still working ok. Original joint line of the case visible on the hinge edge. Very slight indents in keeping with age. Slight softening of the detail to the dog through polishing over the decades.
