A friends family was given this in Ireland a long time ago and they have asked me if I could find out anything abut it.
It looks as though it should be part of a travelling/picnic set.
The makers mark I think is Thomas Woodhouse, although the date is 1900.
Is there any reason why the lion and leopard should be transposed, or is this normal?
If anyone knows where I could start looking for the engraved initials i would be I would be most gratefull
