Here we have a lovely Antique Solid Silver Vesta Case or Match Safe from the late 1800s. It's a great collectors item and would be a fantastic present. It comes in a gift bag.

The case is made of Sterling Silver and features a pretty leaf pattern to the exterior. One side features the initials SRB written in elaborate Gothic writing. The hinge works well and the lid lifts to show a gilded interior. There's a loop on the side so it can be attached to a chain.

It was made by William Neale and it was Hallmarked in Chester in 1895. The makers mark and the Hallmarks are on the rim of the case.

The Silver is shiny with a lot of scratches. There are a number of dents around the sides and one large lined dent just below the initial. There are some darker patches the gilded interior as to be expected with an antique item with a bit of history.

It weighs 28g. It measures 4.5cm by 3.8cm (1 3/4 inches by 1 1/2 inches). The depth is 1cm (3/8 inch).
