Scottish Cat Silhouette Bookmark | Hallmarked Solid Sterling Silver
This superb bookmark was crafted by Kevin and Liz Allen, a pair of Scottish silversmiths working from a hilltop workshop on the remote islands of Orkney. Their understated casting features a silhouetted cat, his tail swishing down into the bookmark’s blade. On the reverse side of the blade can be seen a full and clear set of hallmarks applied by the Edinburgh Assay Office, including the sponsor’s mark identifying it as the work of the Orkneyinga Silversmiths.
Cast in solid sterling silver, our bookmarks are admittedly not as ruthlessly practical as a scrap of paper or an old train ticket stuffed between the leaves, but they are an awful lot more stylish!
They can be used as your daily bookmark to add a touch of luxury to your reading, or as a longer-term page keeper to mark an important or meaningful passage in a particularly special book. Slide one over a slip of card with a personal handwritten message to make a wonderful thoughtful gift for a cat lover, or simply keep as a display item to be treasured and enjoyed.
Presented in a luxury ribboned gift box.
