From my personal collection I am offering this very unusual Sterling Silver Vesta by Black Starr & Frost.
It hearkens back to another era with it's reference to Saturday Dances. It conjures up images of people dancing in their fabulous clothing in smokey dance halls. I'm wondering if this was some prize for the best dancing in a contest. One can only imagine...
The vesta is by the fine NY silver company Black Starr & Frost. It is well marked as shown in photos and in very good antique condition. I have left it unpolished for it's new owner to decide.
It measures 1 7/8" x 1 3/8". A real little gem and a fabulous addition to any collection.
