This exquisite silver vesta or match safe case is from the Art Nouveau period circa 1900. It is marked for 900 quality silver and I believe it is German in origin. There is a crown typical of German pieces. There is also a maker’s mark a ‘W’ with an L across it.

The vesta measures 1 and 7/8” (4.7cms) by 1 and 5/16” (3.3cms). It weighs 15.1 grams.

The high Art Nouveau, raised design is breathtakingly beautiful and the same on both sides. It has sinuous, swirling stems with leaves and berries.

On one side is a ring for hanging, originally on a chatelaine belt or watch chain.. At the base is a striking plate for matches.

The vesta opens easily on its hinge and closes firmly. On the rim are the hallmarks described above.

This most stunning piece is in excellent antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
