The photos do not do this justice. It is an exquisite vesta in lovely condition. This was a very special purchase for me that is as much a work of art as a match safe. This shaped vesta is matte gold which, combined with the design in ruby, diamond and emerald, is the height of elegance and sophistication. It has a hinged lid and match strike to bottom.
