Antique 1915 Sterling Silver Vesta Case, Match Safe
Here we have a lovely Antique Silver Vesta Case from 1915. It’s a smaller size so it would fit a few shorter matches or would be perfect for storing small items in.
It comes in a gift bag and would be a great present.
It was made by Rolason Brothers and it was Hallmarked in Birmingham in 1915. The Hallmarks are on the lid and on the rim of the base.
The Vesta has a pretty Art Nouveau floral pattern on both sides with a blank flag shaped cartouche on one side. It has a ring on one side.
The lid is sprung and snaps shut and the interior is gilded.
The Silver is shiny. There are a number of dents to the sides which adds to the antique look.
It weighs 15.2g. It measures 4.8cm by 3.5cm (1 7/8 inches by 1 3/8 inches). The depth is approx 0.7cm (just over 1/4 inch).
