This wonderfully detailed match safe is solid brass and niello. The front depicts a horse over the sun with other fine details. The back and side also show fine details etched in the body.
Signed MADE IN USA
This piece probably dates from around 1910.
Take a look at the included Atlas Safety Match box. When I purchased this item the full box of matches were all there, as they remain today. They are signed Atlas Safety Matches - Made in Germany
The box is in wonderful condition for its age with beautiful lithography.
