This amazing match safe features two different enamel scenes on each side, and another inside, and along three of the four edges. The first enamel is a half dressed woman with a mirror in her hand. The other side features a lovely maid with a tray full of apples. It reads "oui veut des pommes", which translates "Yes means apples." Inside there is a lovely enamel with a tree and shore scene in a beautiful turquoise. The top of the match safe is hinged and closes with a snap.

Size: 1-7/8" by 1-3/8".

Circa: 1880 - 1890.

Country of Origin: France.

Condition: The enamel is all in good condition with no damage other than a bit of wear. There are light scratches on the black dress of the woman with the apples. Less than expected wear for an antique item.
