This lovely old Victorian match safe or Vesta case is brass with an Art Nouveau floral design, and the striker on the bottom. The lid has a three part pin hinge, and still works well and closes nice and tight. It measures 1 3/4" tall by 1 1/4" wide and has a good patina, this is probably English from the 1880 to 1910 period. A very lovely piece.
