Description

An Imperial Russian silver case with a fitted leather purse interior probably made by Julius Eduard August Lohfert (the purse is marked JAL) who was active in St Petersburg from 1872-1896. It also carries the St Petersburg town mark and is stamped 84 for .875 silver.

The case is in good condition with reeded decoration front and back and carries full hallmarks also front and back. The leather interior is calf skin and is intact with no tears or splits but has some staining here and there particularly under the divider flaps commensurate with age and normal usage.

It opens and closes well with a spring clip, and the hinges are good.
