Vintage 9ct Gold ‘Etui’ / Thimble Case By Philip Kydd Ltd. - London Hallmarks 1987
Superb 9ct solid gold egg shaped Etui or Thimble case, or ‘Pill box’? crafted by Philip Kydd Ltd., quite possibly a bespoke commission piece.
Egg shaped, with engine turned pattern to top and bottom with highly polished rims and top and bottom terminals.
Hinged to open, revealing a highly polished interior, to which a small Thimble, or treasured momento could reside, or perhaps as occurred to us, this wonderful solid gold objet d’art could be repurposed into a special ring box?
Fully hallmarked for Philip Kydd Ltd. Gold & Silversmiths, manufactured in London, and date letter stamp for 1987.
External - 3cm Tall x 2.1cm Wide
Internal - 1.9cm diameter, top and bottom
Top and bottom tapers

Please do not hesitate to ask questions prior to purchase. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that these descriptions and pictures are carefully viewed and any questions are asked prior to the transaction taking place.
