This antique horseshoe vesta case is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The embossed and bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the case and part hallmarks to the interior of the cover and match striker are all very clear; the maker's mark has been double struck.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this Victorian silverware.
