Antique 18ct Yellow Gold Sovereign Case Birmingham 1909

*Please note boxes and chain are for display only*

Exceptional and fine Edwardian English solid 18ct yellow gold sovereign case with full assay marks for Birmingham 1909 and crafted by ALD Dennison Watch Case Co.

Fashioned in pocket watch style with a perfectly functioning top button which when pressed pops open the case to reveal a spring loaded circular section to which two sovereigns would once have been held.

Full hallmarks struck to the interior of the cover for 18ct -Birmingham, and date letter ‘k’ for 1909, and part hallmarks to the sprung sovereign receiver and ring loop attachment which are very clear.

Finely engraved to the front with monogram initials ‘REE ’ (we believe) this sovereign case would have been owned by a wealthy gentleman as this would have been a considerable purchase 112 years ago.

With a large bale to the top allowing a heavy gauge chain is desired, or pop this one on your favourite watch chain.

Beautifully crafted, heavy and quite rare to find these in solid 18ct gold this is a must for the collector or lover of fine jewellery.
