Sterling silver


RARE antique sterling silver candle/lamp/table/cigar lighter Asprey1908 220 gms

Item number: STE07011252

Price: $495

This is a lovely antique sterling silver lamp/table lighter, with is hallmarked top and bottom to Charles Asprey and George Asprey, London 1908.  Underneath is is also stamped "Asprey london" and a number:"74594", which I presume is a patent number. It is also stamped "Rd No 9439750". There is a wick inside and some soaking material. There are 3 dipstick like objects. I believe this is a table top cigar lighter. Long wick would go into central hole. Each of the 3 smaller tapers would carry a smaller tuft like wick. The gentleman would remove a taper (flame tipped handles) touching the wick to the central lit flame and apply it to his cigar. Taper would then be replaced in it's place -extinguishing it. 

It is beautifully made with 3 handles and a triangular-form base It weighs 220 gms, or over 7 ounces. The item stands about 12.5 cms (or 5 inches) tall. The item is in excellent condition: no dents or damage. See photos. 
  I have not cleaned or polished the item.


vintage sterling silver Camusso figural lidded salt with duck hallmarked 16.8 gms

Item number: STE07011256

Price: $65

This is a lovely vintage sterling silver figural lidded salt with a duck, marked "Sterling Silver, 925, Camusso". It is about 3 cms high (or 1 1/4 inches), and has a diameter of 4 cms (just over 1 1/2 inches), weight 16.8 gms (just over 1/2 ounce). It is in excellent unused condition. Must have been given to someone as a present that was never used. 

Here's what I found out about Camusso on the Internet:

In 1933,  Mr. Carlo Mario Camusso established in Lima, Peru a small silversmith workshop, thus laying the corner-stone of what along time would turn to be a well establishe company with international renown.  Later, in 1946, the one person workshop  became a stock company. Since then the company always kept a unique spirit of unity, enthusiams and permanent dedication among its executive members, employees and workers. Their collaboration made out of the founder's dream a today's reality.  On the other hand, three consecutive generations of the Camusso Family who took charge of the management always kept one common denominator as key for success: "Transform Silver in Art". This is how Camusso has become synonym of great and reliable warranty of the Sterling mark stamped on each of 3500 silver products. Carlo Mario Camusso S.A. manufactures more than 3500 products whcih vary from flatware, tea sets, platters, ornaments for commemorations and anniversaries - events which may deserve to be heightened with Sterling Silver.In this online catalog, you will find some of the signature articles of the aforementioned manufacturing lines.

This is a lovely antique sterling silver pair of sugar tongs. There are fully hallmarked but I can't make out the marks, other than the "o" in a shield which I am quite sure is for London 1889.

The tongs are in excellent condition. I have not cleaned or polished the item.

antique chinese silver figural toothpick holder or lidded container, enamel, hallmarked, 210 gms ~ 7 oz

Item number: STE04061224

Price: $195

This is a lovely antique chinese silver (which I think is less than sterling 92.5% silver judging by its colour) container. I think it is a lidded toothpick holder or maybe a match or cigarette holder, or just a container. It has a devil-like lion looking figure on the top, and in engraved on all sides with some very delicate enamel work going on. It is hallmarked on bottom (see photos). It is in excellent condtion. I have given it a bit of a clean, bt it is card to get into the crevices of the figure and into the corners. It could do with another good clean.  As you can see in the photos, the top slides up and off. the base is almost the same height (minus devil) as the top. I know much about this stuff, so please look at photos. It is about 5 inches tall and about 2 x 2 inches at base. It weighs  about 210 gms, which is about 7 troy ounces. A lovely piece. 

Please look at the photos (which form part of the description) and ask any questions if you have any concerns.
