An Antique Victorian Sterling silver combination Sovereign/vesta case which has a rectangular shaped body with attractive decoration to the body with a ring attachment at the top so that it could be worn, if so desired. There is a push button at the top to open the lid which reveals a spring mechanism to house the Sovereigns. At the bottom there is a hinged lid which opens to hold the matches with a striking mechanism to light them. This is a particularly fine example and remains in excellent condition. There is a crest on the front of the body which is part of the history of this interesting piece. It weighs 1.5 troy ounces (48 grams).
Complimentary postage is included within the price.
