Featuring a Textured Body
From our Silver collection we are delighted to offer this highly stylish Silver Canister by Mappin and Webb. The Canister of cylindrical form sat upon a flat circular base with a matching lid. To the top, a stylised Tiger Eye disc is set below shards of textured Sterling Silver. The body of the lid left flat to compliment the continuous textured body of the Cigarette Canister. The base bares four hallmarks reading Mappin and Webb, Lion Passant, Birmingham, dated 1973. Further hallmarks can be found on the lid of the Canister with the Lion passant and matching Y date letter. The Birmingham Assay office hallmark on this Canister bares twin letter C’s beside the Anchor which is a year specific special mark used to commemorate the bicentenary of the Assay Office. The Canister bares the exact resemblance of those made by Deakin & Francis and we therefore strongly attribute this piece to have been made specifically for retail by the Luxury Fine Jewellery Firm.
