Very rare superb Triple Sovereign Case hallmarked Birmingham 1938 by Joseph Gloster Ltd
A sublime and very rare solid silver Triple Sovereign Case. The outer case of the Holder is wonderfully decorated in a lovely neat style. The front cover also has an empty circular cartouch in the centre. The lid opens perfectly with a push button, and when opened three compartments are revealed to hold the sovereigns (all of which work faultlessly). The underside of the lid has a pale gold gilt wash and here very clear hallmarks are visible for the Birmingham Assay Office with a date mark for 1938 and Lion Passant indicating the finest sterling silver, along with the maker's mark for the renowned silversmith: Joseph Gloster Ltd. (Partial hallmarks are also visible on each of the sovereign compartments - see images).
This case is a good heavy gauge of silver.
A very collectable Sovereign case, unusual and rare and in superb antique collector's condition.
