Australian Vesta, Prouds, 1926


William James Prouds opened his first Prouds store in Pitt St Sydney in 1903.  He was instrumental in trying to bring in an Australian system of hallmarking silver, which was adopted in 1923.  This nice little sterling vesta shows an example of the marks, inlcuding the date letter D to tell us it was hallmarked in 1926. It measures 3cm wide and 4cm long.
