This Victorian vesta case is a very good gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in excellent condition.
There is a surface blemish near the hinge of the case, this does not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the piece.
The enamel panel is in perfect condition; there are some surface blemishes in keeping with age.
Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the case and part hallmarks to the interior of the cover are all very clear; the first portion of the maker's mark to the posterior surface has wear in keeping with age and location but remains legible.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of antique Victorian silverware.
