It's obvious that this Victorian match safe was made with the rebellious Suffragette in mind. The repousse image on each side of the case shows a long-haired lady puffing away on a cigarette. A shocking event in those days.

This case was made by the Bristol Silver Company in England, circa late 1800s to early 1900s, at the start of the Suffragette movement in England.

The case is made of SILVEROIN, a white silver metal alloy, which is hallmarked on the rim of the case. As you can see from the photos, one side shows a rust-colored tarnish/wear to the area around her hair.

The Art Nouveau design is on both sides of the case which measures 1 3/4 inches across by 2 1/2 inches high and 1/2 inch thick.

Other than the noted tarnish, the case is in very good condition with a lid that shuts with a secure snap closure. There are no notable dents or dings.

Overall in very good condition. An unusual image in those times and a hint of things to come.
