Silver-Mounted Blackjack

English, 1630

Leather, sterling silver. We rarely find them as good as this! Small size, beautifully deformed by age and use. Silver shield with heraldic crest of Phoenix. Silver rim with engraved inscription "From CTJ to MC 1630". All engraving worn by polishing, but still legible. (See Acorns, April 2017 for John's short article on Blackjacks) Good signs of age, no restoration, excellent condition overall.
