Description

A fine and rare Victorian silver and enamel Vesta Case of Sentry Box form with hinged peaked lid, the face enamelled with a soldier from The Black Watch Regiment (Royal Highlanders). Silver gilt interior.

By Sampson Mordan, London, 1901

This is one from a series of silver and enamel Vesta Cases depicting ‘Soldiers of the Queen’ produced by Mordan around the time of Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in 1887. It was originally thought that the Sentry Box Vesta was limited to a series of perhaps 10 or 12 different examples made specifically for the Jubilee. Around 25 plus different Regiments have now been recorded.

The Black Watch, 3rd Battalion, Royal Regiment of Scotland (3 SCOTS) is an infantry battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland. The regiment was created as part of the Childers Reforms in 1881, when the 42nd (Royal Highland) Regiment of Foot (The Black Watch) was amalgamated with the 73rd (Perthshire) Regiment of Foot. It was known as The Black Watch (Royal Highlanders) from 1881 to 1931 and The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) from 1931 to 2006. Part of the Scottish Division for administrative purposes from 1967, it was the senior Highland regiment. It has been part of the Scottish, Welsh and Irish Division for administrative purposes from 2017.
