    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.
