A terrific figural Japanese Match Safe/Vesta. A fierce cat with his claws out has caught a rat. The cat has two protruding fangs . The rat's long tail wraps around to the back of the mouse. You can see every hair on this cat.
What sets this match safe apart from many others is the condition. Nice sharp detail. Good Hinge. Fine Integral striker, very good patina. No splits.
Measures approximately 3" x 1 ½".
