This is one of my favorites because of the very sweet scene of Cupid kissing Venus while she sleeps. It is a shaped match safe with chased repousse scene on the front, and the reverse having a sky scene with owls peeking through the clouds. There is a monogram on the lid top that is a beautiful scroll but one I can not read. (A photo will come in the near future). It has a match strike on bottom.
