Notes & Condition Report
An unusual vesta case in the shape of an old padlock
A registered design on 16th June 1982
The centre part slides out, where the hinged strike opens to allow access to the matches
As much as the centre part can be removed, it would be best not to do this often as it is held in
by two pieces of cork within the circular body.
It all works nicely and slides smoothly
Good hallmarks and condition
Without damage or repair
