Fine example for the collector of an English vesta, or match safe. Set with five cut agates, the silver is beautifully hand-chased with Celtic-knot patterns. The hinged top is engraved with thistles. Chased borders complete the unusual example with its striker at the bottom. Hallmarks: Joseph Cook & Son, Birmingham 1928. 1 3/8" W., 2" H.
