This match safe is in excellent condition. There are no dings or dents in this piece. It is not silver but most likely a nickel base metal. The lid closes soft meaning it doesn't have that snap to it but it does close firmly and stays closed. The hinge and spring work well. The design is a beautiful leaf and floral design with a flower at the base. This match safe measures 2 1/4" by 1 1/4".There are no makers mark apparent. A really wonderful piece.
