Description
A lovely and rare 19th Century sterling silver novelty vesta case depicting Mr. Ally Sloper in profile, the upper section of the top half with suspension loop and hinged at the top of the hat, opening to reveal vesta section, stamped 925. Ally Sloper was created by C. H. Ross and first appeared in Judy, or the London Serio-Comic Journal in 1867 in a strip called "Some of the Mysteries of Loan and Discount" and featured Alexander "Ally" Sloper and his friend Ikey Mo, a pair of working-class ne'er-do-wells. The characters soon became regulars, and were joined by Ally's wife, Mrs Sloper, his son, The Boy Sloper, and his daughter Toot-sie Sloper, and friends including the Hon. Billy, Lord Bobs, Dook Snook, Uncle Bof-fin, Aunt Geeser, Lardi Longsox and Nellie Hickiks.
