This fine antique George V English sterling silver sovereign case has a subtly domed circular rounded form.

The surface of this piece is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved illustration and inscription ‘Banff, Duff House’*.

The reverse surface of the sovereign case is plain and unembellished.

This case is fitted with a spring loaded catch to the bow, which when depressed releases the hinged cover revealing a hallmarked spring loaded sovereign holder embellished with engine turned decoration.

This impressive piece of antique silverware is fitted with a hallmarked ring loop attachment.

This building, commissioned by William Duff, Lord Braco, is considered an Adam masterpiece and can be considered, including its extensive grounds/estate, one of the most significant buildings in the North.
