Favourite Item
An extremely rare Victorian Castle-Top Card Case of shaped rectangular form with chased and embossed foliate scroll decoration, the front with a scene depicting an unusual view of Osborne House from the Shrubbery in high relief. The reverse with a vacant shaped cartouche.

By David Pettifer, Birmingham, 1851
In good condition with no damage or repair
It is believed that the inspiration for the subject matter on these Victorian Castle-Top Boxes was taken from contemporary prints or engravings and it might well be possible that David Pettifer’s unusual version was inspired by Alfred Brannon’s Steel Engraving of 1849 (see images: - Osborne House from the Shrubbery)
Steel engraving by Alfred Brannon June 15th 1849
Printed on border: "To His Royal Highness the Prince Albert, this view of Osborne (Isle of Wight), is, by His Royal Highness's most gracious permission, respectfully dedicated by his obliged and grateful servant, Alfred Brannon." "Drawn from nature & eng'd by A. Brannon" "Published as the act directs, by George Brannon & Son, Wooton, I.W., June 15, 1849." "Brannons vectis scenery."
