A beautiful reproduction of an antique vesta case (match box) in sterling silver makes a unique statement pendant and conversation piece. By Antique Hunt designs, it is one of a kind.

Vesta cases were the precursor to the modern lighter. Before the days of electricity, people needed to carry matches with them at all times. The vesta case kept matches dry, easily at hand and provided a convenient striking surface. Vesta cases were often attached to watch chains or a lady's chatelaine belts.

Approximate measurement:
Chain is 8-1/2 inches long.  Pendant is 1-3/4 inches x 1-1/4 inches.

This vesta case is a reproduction of an English enameled case. (An original case in this condition would cost thousands of dollars.) We've attached the case to a medium link, double jump link chain with a toggle link closure. The vesta case depicts a lovely hound and it opens & closes to store whatever treasures may fit in.
