This is a fascinating collar and stud box for those interested in horses as it is in the shape of a horseshoe. It is of stitched leather with a leather knot on the top and silver metal rectangular studs as though they are nails in a horseshoe. It closes with a press stud. The interior is of near pristine red silk and delightfully includes an additional small box attached to the base with a leather lid which lifts to provide a space for collar, cuff and dress studs. One collar is included. The condition is very good for age with a few small impressions in the leather, slight wear to the hinge and loss of the silk at the top of the stud box – otherwise this box presents beautifully. This could be the ideal gift for a gentleman or lady with an equine passion! 6.5 ins (17cm) x 6.75 ins (18cm) x 3.5 ins (10cm). Weight 378 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 398.
