This is a lovely sterling silver match safe, made by George Unite & Sons of Birmingham, England in 1886. The inside has a nice gold wash and the outside has a gorgeous engine-turned pattern as well as hand-etched details on the sides. On the front is a blank shield-shaped cartouche. The lid is topped with a bale for hanging on a watch fob or a chatelaine. This match safe is in excellent condition and the lid is in perfect working order. George Unite & Sons were a successful silversmith company, earning a reputation for producing items that reflected the Victorian taste for high decoration and sumptuous design, combined with excellent craftsmanship.
It measures 2" x 1 3/8" and it weighs 24 grams, or 0.77 Troy ounces. It bears the marks: (lion passant), (anchor), (duty mark), GU, and M.
