A rare and beautiful boxed set consisting of a boot or button hook, a glove stretcher and a letter opener. Each has a hallmarked sterling handle. The marks are lion passant (for sterling quality), the date letter which I believe is a lower case r denoting 1891-2, and the anchor denoting Birmingham. The business end of the tools are other materials.
Excellent condition of tools and box with only a little corrosion on boot hook as shown. The tools measure 8 inches (glove stretcher), 7 inches (letter opener) and 6 and 1/2 inches for the boot hook. The original box is fitted for these pieces and has an intact interior of velvet and silk. The blades of the glove stretcher read German Silver Blades.
The silver work is ornate and unmonogrammed. I will do my best to make this work.
