S/3880 Antique 19th Century Tortoiseshell and Silver Plated Turtle Vesta Case
A lovely silver plated vesta case in the form of a turtle, having a hinged head that opens downwards to gain access, with the body made of tortoiseshell. The ribbed metal underside is for striking the match. It is a most realistic model and a must for the vesta case collector.
