A Fly Vesta Case


Fly?  This won’t - unless you chuck it through the window.  It is a vintage (whatever that means) brassy vesta (that’s matches to the uninitiated) case.  In the olden days before the invention of the safety variety you could strike a light by rubbing your match against any old abrasive surface.  See the underside of the wings for said surface… and there you will also find a registration number: 939428. (Seconds on Google found that this number refers to a black close-coupled toilet available only in the USA…. but we digress)

This fly has been much admired in our office where it has developed a penchant for cake… And it got really cross when we turned it upside-down for our final photo.

About 3½ inches long.

Probably brass or some such metal
