This meticulously detailed horse hoof & shoe Vesta case is a perfect replica of a horse’s leg. The hinged case opens at the tip of the hoof and can accommodate modern wooden matches. The striker is on the base of the hoof, at the frog. The top closes securely and the hinge is in good shape. This case is in the style of a 19th c Vesta case, but its age is uncertain, so we are offering it for sale at a reproduction price. It has a loop to connect it to a watch chain or a keychain or perhaps, a statement necklace. It is 2” long by 3/4” wide.
