Sadly, many of us need the odd pill to keep us going, and instead of a nasty little plastic box, why not treat yourself to this 9ct gold vesta case, which has a firmly sprung lid to keep the contents from spilling into your pocket or handbag, and which is nice and slim. It was made in 1912 by H.Matthews in Birmingham, and to add to it it is nicely engraved as a prize from the International Horse Show of 1913 - not many solid gold prizes to be had these days! It is approximately 2 x 1 1/12 inches x 3/8 inches: 50 x 37 x 10 mm and weighs 29.1 grams - just under an ounce.
