Unusual Form Sampson Mordan Silver Vesta Match Safe Hm1880 Novelty Puzzle No Res:
This unusual Mordan vesta measures 40mm (1.5'') x 20mm (.75'') and weighs 19 grams. It is fully hallmarked for solid English sterling silver London 1880 with the makers mark for the famous firm of Sampson Mordan. As you would expect from Mordan it is very well designed with a central pivot pin to the base allowing the vesta to be slide open to reveal the vestas and when closed the opening action is not obvious. It is in good antique condition with no repairs and there are a couple of very minor bruises (see photos). An unusual fob vesta from a top Victorian maker.
International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me.
