A boxed set of four. In a wonderful original Connells of Cheapside English box.  Severely damaged enamels.  Fully assayed for London 1903 and marked for Theodor Fahrner 950 silver standard.  A strong design possibly by Knupfer also.  Interestingly, whilst the silver buttons must have been made in Germany, the English assay marks are beneath the enamel so the enamelling must have taken place in Britain. 2.3cm diameter.
