An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Victorian sterling silver and enamel flag vesta case; an addition to our maritime silverware collection

These flags represent the individual letters 'S', 'R' and 'J'; their combined definition is untraced.

The posterior surface of this antique vesta case is plain and unembellished.

This fine silver flag vesta case is fitted with a ring loop attachment to one side and has a hinged cover which incorporates a plain thumbpiece.

There is an integrated serrated panel/match striker to the underside.

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

The enamel is in perfect condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the sleeve and part hallmarks to the surface of the cover are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.

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