All original burled walnut case. Aside from a few of the small tools, the set is complete. All original glass and matching Sterling Silver lids - all with HTB makers mark. Online research shows this to be a rare fine sterling maker - Brockwell & Son - Henry Titterton Brockwell. Ornate engraved gold handle - monogrammed initials at the center - with a date of February 18th, 1877.
The letters appear to be CAT - not necessarily in that order. It is also the same as the initials on the top center of each Sterling lid.Has a secret compartment in the lid behind the velvet cover - stores what appears to be a journal. I could find only one other example of this case - for sale online in the UK - listed for almost twice what I'm asking. Dimensions are 13.5" long x 9.5" wide x 7.5 tall. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like any other photos.
