This German Silver match safe is in very good condition with age appropriate wear. The lid and spring work perfectly and closes with a nice "snap", closing nice and tight. Although, marked German silver, there is no silver content just a nickel alloy. This was used to make match safes more affordable than using actual silver. This match safe measures 2 5/8" tall by 1 1/2" wide. A great starter vesta. Marked German silver and patd applied for.
