This sweet little hand carved wooden Pug dog is sitting in a begging position with cropped ears and nice glass eyes. I believe it is a match safe even though the head does not come off but there is a carved match striker on the bottom. Either it is glued tightly on at the neck or was never cut to open it but I don’t want to force it to find out. Either way it is a very nice piece of Victoriana and in wonderful condition.
