Antique Dutch Silver Smokers / Night Stand c19006206
Antique Dutch silver novelty night stand or smoker’s tray with match holder and candlestick.
It measures 4 1/2” (12 cms) high to the top of the candlestick holder and 6” (15 cms) wide to the widest point.
It’s decorated with embossed scenes of people playing musical instruments while others dance, and there are also floral decorative areas plus some areas of pierced decorative work.
There is a holder at one end for a matchbox and at the other end a candlestick holder.
In the centre is an area that could be used for more or less anything, perhaps playing cards or spills or if it is a smoker’s stand, cigarettes or cigars.
It’s a very unusual and interesting item with the Dutch silver hallmark 830 on the bottom and dating from around 1900.
