Circular Sterling Silver Vesta Case
In excellent condition with no damage or defects.
This case measures 46 mm by 45 mm.
Vesta cases, also known as pocket match safes, were small easily portable boxes usually with a snap-shut cover and were used to hold Vestas (which are short matches) keeping them dry and to prevent them spontaneously igniting when rubbed against each other!
