Vintage STERLING SILVER Match Book Cover - Match Holder, Match Safe, Flip Top, Hinged

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….

AGE: C.1940 or so

ITEM: What a unique way to fashion silver! Here's a match book holder - match book cover - match safe (well, sort of) - with a hinged top. The lid lifts easily (closes tightly) to reveal a space for some matches - in a holder or not. The front of the top has been overlaid with a monogram - the initials MTR.

CONDITION: In terms of manufacture and execution - perfect! No dents, dings, etc. When found, the piece was completely black so I had to polish for the photographs so that pink dust you see, is just the polish residue I didn't quite get off the cover. A further wash and another polish will definitely erase the tarnish that still shows.

METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver

HALLMARKS: STERLING along with a set of makers mark of MR (in a square) on the back panel. I can find no info on this mark in any of my reference books.

SIZE: When closed, 1-1/2" wide x 2-1/16" long. Depth at the top is about 5/16".

WEIGHT: 35.4 grams - yes, a little over 1 ounce of silver.

FINAL COMMENTS: What a fabulous find!
