A vintage, possibly antique, round tin vesta (match holder / striker) with fob and striking area at the bottom. The centre of the vesta is embossed with what looks like the image of a fastened belt or strap but we do not know what this might signify.
Although structurally sound, the vesta is a basic construction which is quite clear from the quality of the hinge.
There are some signs of scratches and wear and a few minor dinks commensurate with age and use, which we have tried to show in the photographs.
When held by the fob loop, the lid gaps slightly so it is unlikely that the vesta may be repurposed as, for example, a pill holder.
The vesta measures approximately 2in in diameter, excluding the fob and fob loop (with these, the vesta measures about 2.5in top to bottom. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the first part of last century.
