This is a very unusual find, and it is with the greatest pleasure and excitement I offer this to you here, the Antique Sterling Silver & Enamel Smoking Companion in a very good condition. It comprised three cups in various sizes and shapes, one has a raised rectangular clip on its back for holding a match box, all attached to a large stand with a handle, standing on six clad feet. It wholly made of solid sterling silver, including the stand, and gorgeously embellished with ornate chiseled decoration with pearl edges and dark blue enamel finish.
The large monogram "PB X" with a crown on the top, proudly presented on the cups and on the clip. I believe this magnificent piece is from Imperial Russian period, though there is no hallmark to prove it. It hallmarked French Swan marks on almost every parts. Possibly a prototype or a very private order.
