This elegantly simple antique match safe or vesta case has an oblong rounded shape and an ornate hand engraved monogram. The initials look like JSY or some variation.
The inside edge of the case is stamped with the silver content, the design number, and the date code for 1907. The back edge carries the maker's mark for Whiting.
This is a larger case than most at almost 2-5/8" high x 1-3/4" wide x 1/2" thick.
Condition: the lid opens, closes and holds closed properly, some dents along the top edge and a bit of a seam split there as well, general wear and scratching.
