Description

A fine and rare Victorian silver and enamel Vesta Case of Sentry Box form with hinged peaked lid, the face enamelled with a Grenadier Guardsman, wearing the Egypt and Sudan medal 1882-89 and the Khedive’s Star.
Silver gilt interior.
By Sampson Mordan & Co, London, 1886.
Also stamped with Registered Design No: 38283.
This is one from a series of silver and enamel Vesta Cases depicting ‘Soldiers of the Queen’ produced by Sampson Mordan & Co around the time of Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in 1887. It was originally thought that the Sentry Box Vesta was limited to a series of perhaps 10 or 12 different examples made specifically for the Jubilee. Around 30 plus different Regiments have now been recorded. They were made exclusively by Mordan and are stamped with the Registered Design Number 38283. The design was registered at the Patent Office on 17th November 1885.
