King Edward Vii Coronation Gutta Percha Vesta Or Match Safe – No Reserve


INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, PLEASE CHECK WITH US FOR FINAL POSTAGE PRICES BEFORE CHECKING OUT. WE OFTEN FIND THAT THE SYSTEM PRICES POSTAGE TOO HIGH AND WE WILL REFUND VIA PAYPAL IF ACTUAL COSTS PROVE TO BE LESS THAN QUOTED.

I am in the process of selling a small private collection of Royal Memorabilia – please see my other items.

Offered without reserve and a very low starting price is a gutta percha (a predecessor to bakelite made from the sap of a tree) vesta or match safe commemorating the Coronation of King Edward VII in 1902.

This is in the form of a book, the obverse having an oval relief of King Edward VII in half-left profile, with the King’s Crown above and foliate scrolling surrounding. The scrolling continues to the “spine”. The reverse has the Order of the Garter with the Latin inscriptions “Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense” (Evil be to him who evil thinks); and “E.VII” within the garter. The scrolling on the reverse is in the form of the four national flowers/plants of the United Kingdom – the thistle for Scotland; Rose for England; shamrock for Ireland; and the leek for Wales.

Both the top and bottom of the vesta are spring loaded and in perfect working order, revealing the match safe inside. The leading edge of the box has a striker for matches.

The item measures approximately 2 x 1 ½ ins (50 x 38 mm) and is in very good condition. Please see the photos which form a part of the description.

I have seen these advertised at $180 - $200 on ; and while they are rare in good working order and condition, that does seem a little excessive, hence the very low starting price and lack of a reserve. This item is being posted to sell.

Good luck if you decide to offer.

We will ship internationally and we do accept returns if the item is not as described; but we will not refund postage.
