Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The anterior surface is embellished with fine and impressive enamel designs depicting a phrygian cap* above two shaped escutcheons accented with a key to one and a pipe to the other, to either side of four stylised playing cards.
The lower portion of the design has a central escutcheon incorporating a corkscrew above the wording ‘Liberté - Liberty’.
This fine vesta case is fitted with a ring loop attachment to one side and has a sprung hinged cover which incorporates a plain thumbpiece.
There is an integrated serrated panel/match striker to the underside.
The reverse side of the case is plain and unembellished.
* The phrygian cap, otherwise known as the liberty cap, is a soft red cap which was taken as a sign of liberty during the French Revolution.
