Menu Holders (4, cased) - Sporting Pursuits - Chester 1932 by A. Wilcox - 3cm high; 3.5cm diameter base; 77.5g combined weight (Case: 21cm x 6.3cm x 4cm) - WN/7965
This is a lovely set of four antique silver menu holders or place card stands with a different sporting theme to each one. The motifs represent wildfowling, sailing, hunting, and fishing.
The menu holders sit on shaped, circular bases made from a good gauge of silver to give stability and are beautifully engraved with a pointer dog with duck, yacht, stag and leaping salmon. A major bonus is the presence of the original case, which not only presents the menu holders in an attractive way, but has also preserved them in fabulous condition.
