A wonderful and very unusual find is this Edwardian figural combined hatpin holder and ring tree in English Sterling silver.
Of course what makes this a rare find is the charming little Monkey perched on the top.
The base is where the full English hallmark can be found for the highly collectible Chester assay office and the year 1909. The makers initials are also present for the silversmith, Arthur Johnson Smith.
Excellent condition, the base diameter measuring 2 1/8" and standing 4 1/8" tall.
