This is a nice little repose silver match safe, or vesta, that I believe to be sterling, though it isn't marked as such. It is in excellent condition, and has a shield on the front which has never been monogramed and now could be. It measures 1 and 1/2 inches North to South, and 1 and 1/4 inches wide. It is circa 1900.
