Attractive sterling silver sovereign case with decorative engraving and monogram on the front dated 23.9.07 and hallmarked for Birmingham, 1901. This would have been worn on a double watch chain with a watch on the other end or on a vest chain. This fits into the category of a fausse montre (false watch). The piece opens to reveal a hallmark on the interior of the lid and the section for a gold coin is also hallmarked and the area that presses down for placement of the sovereign has a good spring and bounces back and would have held the coin in good position. The condition is very good apart from some slight surface marks consistent with use and age and it would be a lovely addition to a collection of sovereign cases, watch-form items or as a piece of jewellery to wear on a chain. Diameter approximately 1.25 ins (3.2cm). Weight 30 grams This item can be seen in the book, "How the Watch was Worn - A Fashion for 500 Years", on page 212. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $33.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
