Beautiful Swedish Cut Glass And Silver Antique Jewellery or Trinket Pot

  FREE UK NEXT DAY DELIVERY.  We Ship Worldwide.

This is a beautiful antique silver and cut glass pot for small pieces of jewellery or little trinkets. It was made in Stockholm, Sweden and it dates to 1911. The pot is fully hallmarked and also has a maker's mark.

The Exterior

This pot has a beautiful cut glass body and a fully hallmarked (screw on) solid silver lid.

The silver lid has exquisite fine engraving plus lightly engraved fancy script initials which appear to read 'ED'. There is a beautiful high polished glossy finish to the silver. Details on the silver lid's hallmark and its maker can be seen below.

The glass body of the pot has beautiful cut squares, all with an alternating pattern of single octagonal and multi pyramid-like forms. All of these are raised and crisply cut. There is also a beautiful crisply cut starburst pattern to the bottom of the pot.

The pot will make beautiful storage for small pieces of jewellery such as rings, earrings, pendants and brooches. Alternatively, it can be used for little trinkets or coins. Care should be taken when placing items into the pot so that the glass doesn't chip or crack.

The Silver Hallmark/Maker's Mark

The lid has a full Swedish silver hallmark plus a maker's mark. The hallmark has three stamps as follows:

  • Swedish Silver National Control Mark - 3 crowns in a Trefoil cartouche
  • Swedish City Mark for Stockholm, in a circular cartouche
  • Date Letter Mark I7 for 1911, in a rectangular cartouche

The present form (as on this silver lid) of Sweden's National Control Mark for silver, commenced in 1901. Its three crowns were taken from the Swedish Coat of Arms.

The alphanumerical date letter system for Swedish silver commenced in 1759 and continues to this day.

The maker's mark ABH is of Swedish silversmith Bernhard Hertz. This silversmith made a variety of silverwares, including solid silver cups and jewellery. Some of his wares were imported into other Scandinavian countries such a Denmark and these items have been seen with Swedish import stamps. There is also a Danish silversmith called Bernhard Hertz who has the maker's mark 'BH'. This silversmith appeared to have made jewellery solely and his maker's mark is found alongside Danish silver hallmarks. It is unclear as to whether or not these two silversmiths are the same person or have a connection.

Condition

This beautiful pot is in superb condition!

The silver has only extremely light wear and very little tarnish. It has no nasty scratches or dents.

The glass has NO chips, cracks or grazing and there is only very light friction wear on the bottom of the pot.

The screw threads inside the lid have worn a little with age. It is advised to screw the lid on gently and slowly to achieve a secure fit. The lid will pull off but we do not recommend this, as this will cause further wear to the threads. Neither should the pot be lifted up by its lid - this could loosen the fit and the glass body could fall and potentially crack as a result.
