We are swooning over this pretty Victorian Sterling Silver heart vesta! Transporting you straight back to the late 1800s, this antique heart-shaped case would've once homed matches to keep them dry. Open her up to reveal a full set of hallmarks, dating her all the way back to 1897.

Bursting with Victorian charm, floral motifs adorn both front and back and comes complete with a sweet blank shield cartouche. Boasting a serrated edge on her right-hand side, we wonder just how many matches she would've ignited over the last 100 years!
