CONGRATULATIONS!

£20.00

This strange little item will make you gasp and stretch your eyes – a quite extraordinary tour de force one might say (or of course one might not). Whatever, if you have been hunting for ages to source that perfect and rare wedding gift…..don’t pass this one by without a second thought.

It is cut from either continental silver or (more likely) silver plate

It is a sort of 3 x 4 inches

It has a maker’s mark – two Rs back to back –  we are too lazy to research this.

We have placed it on a cream background (not very clever) for the photo but if you look carefully you will see that it is entirely cut through – filigree you might say – like lace…

The central gothic window sports a bunch of roses, the background is a pattern of bells and the words Congratulations meanders all round the edge…

Strangely there are three slots on the left  – as if this were attached to something (perhaps with white satin ribbon) – we know not what.

We have not cleaned it….

One of our number takes the view that the carving is so fine it must have been done by acid etching… who knows?  We are certainly not going to argue with this.

Another is currently making retching gestures over the WPB.
