Antique Scandinavian Enameled Sterling Silver Vesta Case with Neoclassical Motif

About

This highly collectible circa 1896 vesta case was made in Oslo, Norway by Arthur David-Andersen. The match safe has a hinged lid and is composed of sterling silver with a vermeil wash. The exterior features crimson enamel decoration with large, matching neoclassical foliate motifs on the front and back. The edges of the case are bordered by a series of white enamel circles. The underside of the piece is finished with a recessed ridged match strike. The case is fully hallmarked at the inner lip and bears Arthur David-Andersen maker's mark along with Birmingham Assay Office marks designating the year 1896 and the letter "F" designating foreign production. This elegant Scandinavian vesta would be a wonderful addition to an existing collection of tobacciana, or could be used as intended. A beautifully made object.
