This is an Italian souvenir tin circa 1922-39. The tin has a shiny silver-like finish and is shaped and opens like a book. It could be used as a match safe (vesta) or a pill box. It measures 2 1/4" x 1 3/4" x 3/8". The front has a raised image identified as PIO XI, Pope Pius XI. The back has an image of the Plazza DI S. Pietro Roma. There are some scratches, but it is in very good condition.
