A most unusual Victorian vesta case in the form of a pocket knife or pen knife. The brass has repousse decoration to emulate the look of a natural antler horn finish, with a the strike to one end.
The sprung hinged lid works perfectly and the other end is where the strike can be found to strike the vestas or non-safety matches that would have been housed inside.
Excellent condition, measuring 2 1/4" x 7/8" wide x 5/8" thick.
