This is a very playful silver piece. It is a cylindrical Match Safe with cherubs parading around it. Each strikes a different pose around a threading grapevine. They look very happy indeed!
Piece measures just under 2-1/2 inches tall with 5/8 inch diameter. The striker is on the bottom. Completely unmarked it is likely to be heavy quadruple plate silver. Possibly English or Continental in origin it dates from about 1895.
Condition is mint showing almost no wear and all original with no damage or repairs. This gem would be a welcomed addition to any collection.
