This lovely Dutch silver match safe appealed to me immediately when I purchased it from another Ruby Lane dealer. It is so idyllic and picturesque, with two windmills, boats and even birds and clouds. It is interesting that the Lion Passant hallmark is on the front lower left, while two other hallmarks are on the side.
