A set of 26 Silver "English Monarchs" engraved gaming counters by the Simon Van Der Passe workshop of London, c.1620, scarcer "half-portrait" style, in varying grades of preservation with a couple cracked or wavy flans, averaging 25mm in diameter. Remarkably, counters are housed in original round silver box consisting of cut-out portrait of Charles I on lid, and a further engraved counter (Prince William?) sealing the bottom. An extraordinarily scarce artifact, worthy of some spirited bidding.
