Here is an intriguing cigarette case with niello enamel. It has a flower motif on both sides, and a blank space for a monogram on one side. It is marked (and tests as) sterling silver. The piece measures 3-7/8 x 2-15/16”, and weighs in at 4.92 ounces. In excellent condition, though since the elastic is in such good condition, it may be a replacement.

A fine pair of cast silver plated candlesticks from Elkingtons in a victorian rococo style. They are marked "Elkington" with touch marks and "414" to the base.The sconces are separate.
Dating from c.1870 they stand 5 5/8inches (14.3cms) high.
The silver plate has worn and the underlying copper alloy has bled through giving a pleasing patina similar to old Sheffied plate. One has a minor dent at the base which you have to look for to see.
