About

A good quality early 20th century silver and enamel Vesta case of rounded rectangular form with sprung hinged lid and attached suspension ring, the face enameled with the coat of arms of Wadham College, Oxford. The reverse engraved with initials and dated 1912. By Robert Chandler, Birmingham, 1911 In good condition with no damage or repair 40.00 Grams (1.29 troy ounces) Wadham College /'w?d?m/ is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. It is located in the centre of Oxford, at the intersection of Broad Street and Parks Road. Wadham College was founded in 1610 by Dorothy Wadham, according to the will of her late husband Nicholas Wadham (1531-1609), a member of an ancient Devon and Somerset family. The central buildings, a notable example of Jacobean architecture, were designed by the architect William Arnold and erected between 1610 and 1613. They include a large and ornate Hall. Adjacent to the central buildings are the Wadham Gardens. Amongst Wadham's most famous alumni is Sir Christopher Wren. Wren was one of a brilliant group of experimental scientists at Oxford in the 1650s, the Oxford Philosophical Club, which included Robert Boyle and Robert Hooke. This group held regular meetings at Wadham College under the guidance of the warden, John Wilkins, and the group formed the nucleus which went on to found the Royal Society.
