This match safe is in very good condition with normal wear for an item of this age. There are no major dings or dents and the spring and hinge work great, snapping open and closed as expected. This match safe is made of silveroin, a trademark for a white silver alloy (not silverplate) made 1895-1915 by the Bristol Silver Co. One side is monogrammed with an ornate script of E.E. The opposite is left blank. The striker on the bottom is in perfect shape. This is a great starter match safe as the price is great.
