A rare George V silver Butt Marker of plain rounded rectangular form with sprung hinged lid and integral sprung hinge to the base separating the two sides once opened. The silver gilt interior with eight numbered silver pegs.

By Asprey & Co, Chester, 1926

Butt markers were used to help choose the first shooting position to start from in a game shoot, with shooters taking turns to choose a peg inserted into the sheath to reveal their number position on the first drive. They are often shaped like Vesta cases or cartridges, and contain up to ten pegs made from either bone or ivory. Many shooters today are taking an interest in these Edwardian artefacts, and it is these antique silver butt markers which Steppes Hill Farm Antiques specialise in selling.
