London 1894 solid silver matchsafe of large size.
London 1894 Victorian English hallmarked solid silver matchsafe of large size, and heavy weight.
Vesta cases and match safes 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.
Size-2 3/8 inches long by 2 1/8 inches wide, and weighing 50 grams.
Hallmarks are rubbed, and there are some age commensurate minor marks to safe.
