4 Victorian Sterling Silver Menu Holders. These beautiful novelty menu/card holders are made from sterling silver. They are in the form of fire grates with ornate, scrolled frames, paw feet and pierced grills.There are 2 bars at the back for holding menu or place cards and the holders are supported on semi-circular rests - one is photographed holding a standard business card. Each is hallmarked for London 1900 with the maker's mark of the highly collected silversmith, William Comyns. They are presented in their original black-coloured case with push-button clasp, light blue silk lining to the lid and dark blue velvet to the base.
The holders are in beautiful condition with no dents, dinks or splits to the front and the decorative detail is nice and crisp. There are a few tiny kinks to the semi-circular bars but these are around the hallmarks and were clearly caused when they were struck. The case is in good order with functioning clasp that locks securely. The exterior has about 6 small areas of missing covering and some light scuffing across the base.The linings are in good order with no rips although there are a few feint brown marks to the silk and some light rubbing to the velvet caused by the holders.

Prices are calculated to include the weight of packaging as well as the weight of the item. To ensure items are safe in transit, I package them very well and, unfortunately, this does increase mailing costs somewhat. All packages must be signed for upon receipt.
Should you wish to return an item, please contact me as soon as possible after receiving it. I source and re-home high quality antique and vintage silver at wholesale prices. On the odd occasion, I come across something that might have had a bit of a rough life but deserves a second chance rather than being consigned to the melting pot. In all cases, because buyers are purchasing from a distance, I always provide in-depth condition reports and multiple high-magnification images in my listings to give you as much information as possible. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
