Victorian Sterling Silver Repousse Engraved Vesta Pendant
This lovely antique sterling silver vesta case was acquired from an antique dealer's San Francisco estate.
The case is highly polished with beautiful hand-chased designs on both sides.
Timelessly beautiful and very useful, the case is from the early 1900s and makes a wonderful locket. Smaller than many cases of the era, the vesta case has was originally made to attach to a woman's chatelaine clip or a man's pocket watch fob clip.
The case has full hallmarks for Birmingham, England with the maker's mark 'W.O". It measures 1-3/4" tall by 1" wide. I've included a contemporary 20" sterling silver chain. Total weight of the vesta is 17.9 grams without the chain.
A truly wonderful keepsake!
