I learned a long time ago when I first started buying British Silver items and learned about the hallmarks, that for some reason, items from Chester were usually my favorite. This assay office closed in the 60's, so it is no longer possible to get something new minted in Chester, but there are many beauties out there, like this one, who got their start in Chester. Here we have a change purse, minted in Chester in 1910. The purse hangs from a chain with a loop, so that it could be hung from a chatelaine. The purse has the initials "HC" in the front, and the lovely blue silk lining is in excellent condition. The purse claps tightly, and is in very good condition. It does have a two little dings, one on the front and one on the back, which are not very noticeable. Excuse the shadows; silver is very hard to photograph, as it acts like a mirror! The purse measures 2 and 1/4 inches North to South, and 3 inches East to West.
