Description
On offer is this collectable antique match safe / striker dating circa 1900. This match safe is made of brass metal and the hinged lid has enamelled decoration featuring an gentleman and maid. Along the bottom are the words "Ou est Josephine?..... The spring hinged lid lifts up to reveal a well for match storage with pierced metal holder. The back side edge of the case is ridged to enable matches to be struck along it and lit. This little match safe measures just 5 cm by 3.7 cm and the case has no dents or dings. The enamel lid has no chips, cracks or crazing and the brass metal has some tarnishing which I have not cleaned. These enamel vesta cases are very desirable amongst collectors and are becoming increasingly hard to find. Thank you for looking.
