Antique silver plated Vesta Case on sterling silver chain with sterling silver and 14kt yellow gold fill beads. A unique, one of a kind 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.
This Leoni & Vonk Vintage necklace uses original antique/vintage pieces which may show wear and tear with their age.
All Leoni & Vonk jewellery is packaged in a black wallet/pouch.
