Antique Anglo-Indian Silver Plated Vesta Case with Cartouche and Mughal Mark (Code 0986)
A late 19th Anglo-Indian silver plated vesta case. It is quite heavy for it's size and has a scrolled design set more deeply than typical for English examples of the period. It certainly follows the English design style and has a sprung lid which is still quite stiff despite the age. There is a looped hanger and two vacant cartouches to the body along with the striker to the base. There is a stamped Mughal type character to the inner rim.
