Superb Art Deco Enamelled Silver Vesta or Book Match Case Birmingham 1928 "HCD"
I have seen little cases such as these before and they contained books of matches. It may be a bit of a stretch to call it a "vesta" but I could not really find any other suitable description. It is beautifully enamelled and would make an excellent card case for small business cards (say 2 x 1.25 inches, 5 x 3cm)
It has aBirmingham hallmark for1928. The maker's mark is"HCD" whichI think is "Henry Clifford Davis. All marks are crisp and clear.
The exterior dimensions are 2.5 x1.75 inches ( 6.5 x 4cm). I doubt that it matters too much butthe weight is58 gms.
As can be seen from photographs 1 & 7, there is a tiny white area on the front right corner.
