Always loved interesting vestas that made me look twice and made me wonder what was being depicted. This fellow looks like he is sticking his tongue out. He appears to be in a cap or beret, perhaps a sailor's cap. There is a great deal of repousse stylized foliate and ribbon decoration, with bunches of grapes, swirled borders, leaves and unidentifiable shapes all in high relief. The reverse is undecorated. It has a hinged lid and match strike to bottom.
