A lovely little English Sterling Silver Match Safe or Vesta. It was made in Birmingham in 1900 by Joseph Gloster. It measures 1 51/8'' wide and is 1 3/4'' high it weighs 17 grams. This piece is quiet simple, just a plain vesta with a ring on the top for attaching. The inside marks are a lion passant, the city mark for Birmingham, the letter a for 1900 and J.G for Joseph Gloster. The hinge is in perfect working order and it closely tightly. It is in perfect shaped apart from some small pin size dings. Great small pocket vesta.
