Unger Bros - Sterling Silver - Match Safe - No Mono

Here is a Classic example of Unger Bros at their Art Nouveau best.
This Vesta is resplendent with Cupids or Cherubs surrounded by floral and foliate designs. We saw on another listing that this Match safe is pictured in Rainwater's book that includes the 1904 Unger Bros catalog and is identified on the page of MATCH BOXES AND HOLDERS as #2563. This lovely antique is correctly marked on the lip of the lid with the Unger Bros. "UB" hallmark, and "STERLING 925 FINE". The hinge is still tight, and the lid closes properly. It is gilded inside.

This vesta is 2 3/4 inches at the tallest by 1 3/4 inches at the widest. It weighs 25.6 grams. It is curved at the back to fit neatly into a pocket. It is not monogrammed.

Condition is Very Fine. There two small shallow dents that I attempted to photograph. One at the very bottom next to the striker, and one on the bottom right side on the backside.
