This horn was retailed by PEARCE AND SONS LTD of Melton Mowbray, one of a limited edition of only 250, this being no. 45 to celebrate the silver jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1977. The quality of this item is unmistakable – it weighs a good 103.2g or 3.3 troy ounces. It measures 9 inches (22.5cm) in length. The workmanship and quality of the decoration is superb; deeply chased into the silver. This was a very expensive item when purchased. Condition is very good indeed with no dents or scratches. Although this item was probably bought as a Presentation Piece or gift it has not been personalised or engraved and so would lend it self very well to the addition to an isncription or monogram This would make a really superb Christmas gift.
