This is a 1909 match safe with a floral design and center cartouche on each side. The bexel is marked "Sterling", "B2509", "Pat Applied For" referring to the design of the unique lid tension spring, the date mark for 1909 and the maker's mark for Gorham Mfg. Co., Providence RI. Its approximately 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches with a striker to the bottom. Very good condition with strong lid spring. It has some minor edge dings and the sides are slightly squeezed.
