The mount, clip and embossed decoration are all hall marked for Chester and the year 1899 and the maker's mark for Cornelius Desormeaux Saunders, James Francis Hollings Shepherd.

The case has a pair of horn rimmed spectacles with very strong lenses.

The case and silver are in very good condition. (Circa 1899)
