This is a wonderful relatively low cost addition to your match safe collection, or to start one. My feeling is that match safes are becoming more and more popular as collectibles, since they are still affordable, and there is, in my opinion, potential for appreciation. This vesta is especially collectible because of the very attractive and exotic woman featured in high relief repousse, with palm trees nicely depicted in the background.
It is silver-plated, and in really good condition.
