A Victorian sterling silver box which looks to be a type of vesta but does not have the pen-like lighter part...

It has an English hallmark for London and has the Queen Victoria mark which dates it between 1837 and 1890 as the date mark is rubbed.

Measures approx 2 1/2 inches by 1 3/8ths inch by 5/8ths inch high.  Weighs 63 grams so a good weight.

In generally used/worn condition but an interesting box.

Please note that all my items for sale are old and one would expect to see some wear commensurate with the age of the item.  I try to list all the imperfections, repairs or damage, however, bear in mind they are not brand new and will show age related wear.

I sell antique jewellery that I would love to wear or collect myself.  Why not have a look at my other similar listings. 

Any questions please email me. Thank you :)
