This wonderful match safe case is from circa 1900- 1910. It is marked for 800-900 quality silver with two French boar’s head marks. It also bears a lozenge which has a C and an M with a blackberry between the letters This is the mark of the jeweller, Charles Murat, established in Paris in 1847 and still going strong today. There is a further mark which I am unable to interpret. The match safe is embellished with rose gold.

The match safe measures 1 and 3/4” (4.5cms) by 1¼” (3.2cms). It weighs 19.2 grams.

The front and back of the match safe are decorated with raised and engraved flowers and leaves. On the front is a beautiful, swirling rose gold shield, ready for a monogram. On the reverse , amongst the flowers is an exquisitely engraved bird sitting on a branch.

It opens easily and closes firmly. The upper edge bears the marks described above.

There is no striking plate.

This rare and most exceptional piece is in excellent, antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
