Antique Victorian Crab Claw Silver Vesta Case

Item ID: 1919 | Category: Antique And Vintage


A Very Rare and unusual Antique Taxidermy Victorian Crab Claw Vesta Case with Silver Mount(unmarked)and Hinged Lid with Striker. The Lid is beautifully engraved with A. A.DE LESSERT ABERDEEN From J.A.G ARTLEY 1889. De Lessert was a Dental Surgeon in the area at the time and the Crab Claw strongly resembles a Large Human Tooth! No doubt a Humorous Gift from his Friend or Colleague J.A. Gartley. Wonderfully made and very rare it is certainly a unique item which still arouses great interest and amusement today. Measures 6 x 4cms and in beautiful condition for age.
