William H. Haseler were the manufacturers for the London firm Liberty & Company. Liberty insisted on anonymity for its designers.
Vesta cases are airtight cases made to contain short friction matches and keep them safe and dry.

They were widely made and used from 1890-1920. Many had a loop attached, like this one, to attach to an Albert chain. Now, they are very collectable and interesting small antique silver items.
This shape, with curved back, was meant to fit comfortably into a vest pocket, curving into the body.
Weight- 25 grams.
Size- 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches.
With tight hinge closure, good weight and very clear hallmarks.
