This exceptional antique Edwardian English sterling silver vesta case has circular form, modelled in the form of a spherical football*.

The anterior and posterior of the case is embellished with tooled decoration replicating the details of the football's leather panels and ties.

This piece retains the original hinged cover ornamented with a continuation of tooled decoration.

The vesta is fitted with a ring loop attachment to the side in addition to an integrated serrated panel/match striker to the underside.

* This spherical ball is used in Association football, more commonly known as football/soccer. This piece depicts a period ball of leather panels sewn together, with a latex bladder to regulate the pressure; the prior use of a pig's bladder brought about the American slang-term of "pigskin".

Date: 1909


This antique silver vesta case is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The tooled decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the rim of the vesta and part hallmarks to the surface of the cover are all very clear in keeping with age and location.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique Edwardian silverware.
