Vesta Case

Price: £ 68
Dimensions: L. 70mm

Rare Victorian convict straw work vesta case with a charming note from the maker to his mother: 'The last little offering I made dear mother in Ruxton CHB Oct. 1869' (was it the latest or the last before execution?). A wonderfully intricate example and uncommon in this pristine condition.
