About

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Victorian English sterling silver and enamel vesta case; an addition to our range of collectable silver cases. This exceptional antique Victorian silver vesta case has a plain rectangular form. The body of the vesta case is ornamented with an impressive rectangular white enamel panel incorporating black script displaying 'Just it up again' segmented with an illustration of a pitchfork; it can be determined this agricultural tool to symbolises the word 'dig'. The case is fitted with a plain hinged cover to one end and has a serrated panel/match striker to the other. The posterior surface and rounded sides of this impressive Victorian silver vesta case is plain and unembellished. Condition This Victorian vesta case is a very good gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in excellent condition. There is a surface blemish near the hinge of the case, this does not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the piece. The enamel panel is in perfect condition; there are some surface blemishes in keeping with age. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the case and part hallmarks to the interior of the cover are all very clear; the first portion of the maker's mark to the posterior surface has wear in keeping with age and location but remains legible. Dimensions: Length 3.2cm/1.3" Width 0.9cm/0.4" Height 4cm/1.6" Weight: 0.7 troy ounces/22.9g Maker: Lawrence Emanuel Date: 1891 Origin: Birmingham, England Video: A video of this fine piece is available upon request. Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware. sku: A7939
