I believe you will find this is a card case and not a vesta case... if I am correct there will be no rough surface on which to strike the vestas. Best wishes, Mike.

It is indeed a copy of the huge medieval anointing spoon which is used at each coronation... replicas of various sizes and material are produced at each coronation. Best wishes, Mike.

Any repair unless invisible would not add to the value of the box and unless you are going to use the box rather than keep it as part of a collection.. it is not worth the expense. Best wishes, Mike.

With the absence of a duty mark and the shape of the leopards head... I read the hallmark as London 1904/5.

The bottom part of this Georgian Patch box was made in Birmingham in 1808/9 by the famous silversmith Samuel Pemberton....... I am unable to make out the marks on the lid from your photo... could you please post some more that are a little more revealing.
Best wishes, Mike.

Suggest that the spoons are inports from the Middle or far East... The style and pattern look Indian to me but certainly Eastern. Best wishes, Mike.

Can I suggest you search all over the stick for other marks as those in themselves do not seem to reveal anything to me... maybe to someone else.
If there are other marks please post them. Best wishes, Mike.

Confirm the date as 1726/27 and those are quality plates with the keen gadrooning round the edges and a beautifully engraved armorial.... Would suspect that the makers initials will be on it and would love to know who made them. Please post a pic of makers initials. Best wishes, Mike.

Suggest may be an 'M' rather than a 'W' and without the duty mark is likely to be 1911-12. Anyone else?
