A good quality and early Victorian silver Vesta Case combined with a wick holder, made in the form of a horseshoe with attached suspension ring, with superb double hinged opening mechanism and silver gilt interior and striker. A knurled wheel to one side to extend the wick and an applied crest to the circular cartouche depicting a demi lion rampant out of a ducal coronet, holding a ducal coronet between its paws, possibly for the Henry family.
