This is fantastic highly polished solid 9ct Rose gold Victorian Vesta Case fully hallmarked or London and date letter’U’ which I believe to be 1895 and with makers mark GH which I also believe is for George Heath and this would tie in with the Vesta date but please see the pictures and do your own research to confirm. This is a large size vesta which has a robust rectangular shape with rounded corners, it is very tactile with its smooth highly polished surface. There is a ring on the top where it could be attached to a Albert chain. There is a hallmark in the usual place on the inner rim when the lid is opened and a further one on the inner inside of the lid. The lid open and closes perfectly with a strong spring and the hinge works well. The striker is on the base. The overall condition is good with some surface scratching and minor blemishes all of which are line with its age and for an item which is not brand new and 124 years old. There are no splits or holes and the case feels very solid, please see the pictures and look at them carefully as they form part of the listing. Weighs 24.1 grams Dimensions; 48mm x 33mm x 9mm wide approx This is a lovely highly polished vesta case of solid 9ct gold would make the most unique of gifts or a fantastic addition to any collection.
