This is a very pretty Sterling Vesta. This likely belonged to a woman. It has a nice large attached and original O ring so this can be attached to a chain and worn as a necklace. Or, this can be added to a watch chain and used as a fob.
The detail is very pretty and it is decorated on both sides. There is raised repousse work with scroll work and raised flora. The top closes with a nice snap. There is an area around the entire safe where a match can be struck.
It is a nice size and measures 1 3/4" at its widest portion x 1 5/8" across. The safe has a 925 punch and there is a small makers mark to the right of the 5 however it is very difficult to make out.
The safe is in excellent antique condition with no apologies to be made. It is likely American in origin. Circa 1900 this safe sits directly on the Victorian / Edwardian border. This would make a lovely gift to one you love or would work very nice into a Vesta collection. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
