Product Description

A beautiful and rare repoussé antique sterling silver vesta case for wooden matches depicting a hunting in tall grass with his dogs on point and birds in flight.

It is marked G.Silver, or German silver. Vintage match safes were generally carried in a man's vest or coat with wooden matches and preceded the invention of the match book around 1910.

The top is hinged spring loaded for opening and closing and features a ribbed striker on its bottom and the original owner's initials script monogrammed.

England Circa 1890s

1.5" W by 3.5" H
