Fine Antique Silver & Objects of Vertu



SOVEREIGN CASES

A sovereign case is used for carrying either full or half gold sovereign coins and often worn on a gentleman's Albert/watch chain and kept in a waistcoat pocket. The coins would be stacked tightly together by a spring action mechanism; a case usually holds about 4 or 5 sovereigns. Some can have a number of compartments holding halves as well as full sovereigns. They can also be seen combined with vesta and stamp cases. The cases were at the height of fashion during the late Victorian and Edwardian period and can be highly decorated or completely plain.
