This antique Bristol Silver-Plated Match Safe is quite nicely decorated with a floral wreath and ribbon. It is still easy to start an antique match safe (vesta) collection very inexpensively. Of course, not all silver-plated match safes are inexpensive. It is a matter of rarity as well. (You can see a fine example of a very valuable rare silver-plated match safe I have listed).
Maker: Bristol Mfg. Co., Attleboro, Massachusetts.
Size: 2-3/4 inches high (7.0 cm)
Weight: .7 ounces (gross)
The match safe with floral wreath and ribbon decoration, hinged lid, match strike to bottom.
Condition : Minor surface scratching, minor losses to plating.
