This sterling match safe by Watrous Mfg. Co. of Wallingford, CT is in excellent condition with normal wear. There is a pin point ding on the back side, very small but visible. I like this piece because of one, its weight. I feels thick and heavy for its size at 40.6 grams. Secondly, the cartouche. Very classy with a floral and acanthus design centered which is a cSc within a circle. The date of 1914 is split with this circle. The border also has a nice floral and acanthus design. This was made in the midst of the art deco period and shows that with the striping. The lid hinge and spring work perfect, The striker is in very good condition. This piece measures 2 5/8" by 1 5/8". Marked on the bezel with the Watrous hallmark, sterling and an unidentified mark.
