A sterling silver vesta case (matchsafe) by Walker & Hall of Sheffield, hallmarked in Sheffield in 1895 and portraying Charley's Aunt, from the play of the same name. On the back is the inscription, rather rubbed, 'From Charley's Aunt Dec 21st 1895'. These were apparently handed out to the male members of the audience on the First Night of the play.
Not in the best of condition, obviously worn and used for many years, the hinge damaged and lacking in spring, but a rare piece of theatrical memorabilia.
Price includes packaging, insurance and Air Mail shipping anywhere in the world.
