This is an unusual antique vulcanite or Gutta Percha vesta case.
It is molded with lines that go sideways and a name Sachseln, which is inscribed on a scroll in the front. Sachseln is a village and municipality in the canton of Obwalden in Switzerland, and this is probably a souvenir of that town.
It has a striker on the side and the top opens by pushing where the top extends over the edge.
Nice antique piece.
Condition: Very good for this material.
Size: 2 5/8 by 11/2 inches.
