This is a very special and unusual piece. A rare continental sterling silver Mr Punch vesta case on a sterling bead chain. He is in excellent condition and has red gemset eyes with a hinged base which opens and shuts very crisply. A great 'talking point' necklace.
Vesta Cases were small portable boxes used to carry vestas (short matches) and were carried by men and women alike. So called after the name of one of the early makers (which was taken from the goddess Vesta, a Roman deity of fire and the hearth), they came into use around the 1830s and were produced extensively between 1890 and 1920.
Mr Punch is 6cm tall and the chain measures 70cm.
