A very attractively engraved and nicely shaped solid silver vesta case. This appealing vesta has lovely curved corners and the handsome engraving features a swirling leaf design to both the front and the back of the case, with an empty shield cartouche in the centre of the front. Hinged to one side the Vesta opens and closes perfectly. When opened clear hallmarks are visible on the inside lip for the Birmingham Assay office with a date mark for 1898 and Lion Passant indicating sterling silver.
A lovely vesta, in great antique collector's condition.
