This magnificent antique Victorian cast sterling silver vesta box has been realistically modelled in the form of a boar.
This impressive antique vesta case is embellished with details replicating the features of the boar's coat of fur and anatomical features.
The back of the boar incorporates a hallmarked hinged cover which opens to reveal the serrated panel/match striker.
The secondary hallmarked hinged panel opens to reveal the original gilt interior; this is faciliated with a thumbpiece modelled in the form of the boar's tail.
Such magnificent period examples are rare and becoming increasingly difficult to locate.
