FABULOUS ART NOUVEAU FRENCH SOLID SILVER SCOTTISH THISTLE DESK WAX SEAL & LETTER OPENER. This is a Fabulous Fine Quality Art Nouveau French Solid Silver Scottish Thistle designed desk wax seal & letter opener in original case. This Beautiful Box set was crafted in France Circa 1880. Making them over 140 years old, they are fully hallmarked but i cant make out the makers name, the quality is stunning, each piece has been crafted in hallmarked silver with the most beautiful elaborate Scottish thistle decoration so very detailed with. Clasping shapes of a cup or urn form which subtends to the thistle's flowerheads they have even detailed the. Prickles which occur all over the plant on the stem and flat parts of leaves. The thistles raise up the tapering handles on both the wax seal and also the letter opener, this is framed beautifully with arched borders , the seal itself then has a beautiful silver banded platform which holds the engraved initials. This rare French Scottish thistle design set comes complete in its original hinged case, it is i believe a faux deep red leather with the most beautiful gold gilt tooling to the edges. On opening the box you will see the desk set sits snugly in its fitted cream velvet covering, to the inside of the lid it has a padded cream watered silk interior to protect the desk set, as you can see it has the name of the retailer in the top corner. He quality of the craftsmanship is superb, this would have once belonged to a very wealthy family and sat pride of place on there table, this was many many years ago when times were so very different, they are so very tactile and once held it has the most wonderful feel.

This will add something very special to any collection, my photos dont do it justice. The desk seal is 9 cm height... Letter opener is 19 cm...

The box is 9 inches long... 42.5 grams not including the box. All Antique silver items will show some signs of wear, which only adds to the history of the object.....
