We have had many of the smaller sized ones but never before have we had one this size....it measures 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" in size. The very ornate frame is made of Alpaca Silver and has a highly Victorian "Horn of Plenty Floral design" done in repousse. Very attractive 'Stand Out" piece of Victoriana dating to around 1880 we think. In beautiful condition for age with no rips to the mesh but just needs re attaching under hinge areas at either side. The original chain strap is missing.....just a bit either side remains so a replacement one needs fitting.
No Makers Marks but we believe it to be German Made as it is stamped 'Alpaca" which the Germans sometimes used as a description for Nickel Silver.....basically a Stainless Steel type alloy. Alpaca silver is sometimes called Nickel silver because of the large amount of nickel found in the jewellery. It is also called German silver because it was first created and used in Germany, through Berndorf AG.
