For sale is a shield shaped three dimensional chip carved match safe; a hole was carved in the top for hanging. The match safe is 4 1/4 inches tall and almost 3 1/2 inches across at the widest point. The carving is intricate and, I believe, it's walnut so this may be a Black Forest piece. There's a little wear to the wood in spots but it's in great shape and a wonderful example of folk art.
