A rare and collectable antique silver Vesta Case. The maker is the highly esteemed silversmith Prudent Quitte who worked from 42 Rue Notre Dame de Nazareth in Paris and was first registered in 1882. The marks for Prudent Quitte are clearly visible featuring the initials and revolver on the lip of the case beneath the hinged lid. The Tiger decoration, in gilded stripes, to both sides of the Vesta, is extremely unusual. Made from French 800 grade silver.
A fabulous item from a wonderful silver maker!
