Very Rare Novelty Victorian Advertising Vesta Match Safe Naval Outfitters 1902 :
This very rare antique novelty advertising vesta match safe stands 54mm (2'') high x 27mm (1'') across the lid. It is marked with the design registration number 383705 to the inside of the lid that dates it to around 1902 and the top of the lid has the text " Capital & Labour Clothing Store Naval Outfitters 33 High Street Southampton " and they were obviously Victorian Military clothing suppliers. It is very well modelled as a pair of naval trousers with patches to the knees that can be used as a striker as well as the one to the base and it is in excellent antique condition with some slight areas of brass showing through the plate and the lid springs open and snaps shut as it should. A very rare novelty advertising vesta match safe, it would be hard to find another.

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.
