A silver Vesta box hung on silver chains and yellow leather with a Jerusalem Cross.  The stricking combination showcases the delicate engraving on all pieces.

Vesta boxes were produced extensively between 1890 - 1920. During this period, almost everyone carried Vesta ‘strike anywhere matches’, so they could light stoves, lanterns and other devices. Early matches were unreliable and prone to ignite from rubbing on one another or spontaneously, so most people carried a match safe (Vesta box) to house their matches. These were either held in a vest pocket or hung on a chatelaine.
