A handsome, Victorian  solid silver Vesta case, in rectangular form.   Nicely engraved with swirling patterns to both the front and the back.  The front bears a vacant  cartouche in the centre.    Hinged on one side the lid opens and closes perfectly.  The case has clear hallmarks  visible on the inside lip  for the Birmingham Assay Office, with a date mark for 1899 and the Lion Passant indicating sterling silver, along with the silversmith's maker's mark : WH.
