An antique engraved white metal vesta with vacant shield shaped cartouche to the front.
The vesta is not hallmarked and we can only assume that it is either plated on base metal, or, at best, a lower grade silver/nickel silver (not English but continental etc). There is an integral loop at the top of the lid.
The vesta has been cleaned and might benefit from further cleaning. However, after the initial cleaning, the surface remained slightly yellowish. There are a number of small dinks commensurate with age and use, and the lid gaps a little (which we have tried to show in the photographs). Otherwise, the vesta is structurally sound.
The vesta measures approximately 2in by just under 1.75in and about 0.375in deep. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the earlier part of last century. Weighs over 31g.
