This is an unusual c. 1900 silver-plated match safe designed to represent a bible with textured sides and an inscription "The Light of the World" on one side, the reverse give the appearance of curled page corners. Its approximately 2 1/4 x 1 1/2 inches with a striker to the bottom. Very good condition with a strong lid spring. There are some small dings/dents on the edges.
