I have recently been branching out into collecting Silver compacts. This of course is a Cigarette case or Card Case, personally I think it's a Cigarette case, I think it's beautiful.
The hallmarks are for Birmingham b is for the year 1901, hl is the makers mark for Heinrich Levinger.
The silver case is a lovely textured finish enhanced by two applied stylised trees with Chrysoprase the catch is also Chrysoprase, the detailing is typical Art Nouveau.
Many thanks for looking
