    Default Anyone got a spare 100 Gs?

    Whilst pursuing a vintage cigar box I stumbled on this gem.

    My word! Flip-out candle-holders. A rich man's kit.

    Even if I was a rich man i dont think i could drop that amount.

    The link shows more photos and explains the heritage, wish it would show the straights up close, i bet they are stunning.

    I was lucky to score a set of Thornhill razors in ivory. Before finding the forums I shaved with dollar store, pack of ten. Was I more insane then,or now?

    The arms of the candle-holders look crystal!
    A thermometer and a barometer. Food, shaving, class.
    Can just see some safari-going Brit way back, with a big double-gun and a train of men toting along similar things, laying that out in his tent.

    IF that was front-pocket money for me, I might have it!

    It ain't, however!

    Opulent. Decadent. Over the top. Certainly is of another age.

    Looks like it would partner well with those over-sized hold everything steamer trunks the upper crust used on their sea faring excursions.

    I love that scuttle and brush Mike.

    By my fag packet calculations, out if the 64 piece set yours would be worth £3117.
    To me its priceless.

    I'll give it to the Victorians they knew how to cater for the aristocracy.

    Pretty much is. Through my search on it, I found out it was a commissioned, piece.

    All I know is his initials were engraved into the piece.

    Derby Silver Co. showed no listing of this piece being manufactured in quantity. So yeah!...it's a one of a kind piece, made for an individual, by his specifications, or those that had it made for him, as a gift.

    I do retain the original box, though a bit aged.
