Description
An extremely rare Victorian silver 'Castle-Top' Card Case of shaped rectangular form with chased foliate scroll decoration on a matted background, the reverse with a shaped cartouche engraved with contemporary initials ,the front with a raised scene depicting St Luke's Church in Liverpool (a previously unrecorded scene). By Nathaniel Mills, Birmingham, 1845. St Luke's Church, more commonly known by locals as the 'bombed-out church', is a former Anglican parish church in Liverpool. England. It stands on the corner of Berry Street and Leece Street, at the top of Bold Street. The church was built between 1811 and 1832, and was designed by John Foster, Sr. and John Foster, Jr., father and son who were successive surveyors for the municipal Corporation of Liverpool. In addition to being a parish church, it was also intended to be used as a venue for ceremonial worship by the Corporation and as a concert hall. The church was badly damaged by bombs during the Liverpool Blitz in 1941 and has been a roofless shell ever since, giving rise to its nickname. It now stands as a memorial to those who died in the war, and has also been hired as a venue for exhibitions and events. The church and its surrounding walls, gates, and railings are recorded in the National Heritage List for England as designated Grade II* listed buildings.
