In the centre set with a green agate cabochon, the abstracted swirling ornament is a typical example of the designs created by Patriz Huber (1878-1902) for the company of Martin Mayer in the years 1901/1902.
Fitted with a bail to be originally worn on a watch chain or chatelaine, the vesta case would also make a great pendant .
