Product Details

An interesting and unusual match safe from the Victorian (ca1880) period! This unique piece is made of 18kt yellow gold and has a rich, hammered surface. The beautiful textured surface covers all sides of the piece and set on the front are 3 deep sapphires and a single old Rose Cut diamond, which are set within a lovely trefoil design. The top of the match safe is hinged and opens at a sapphire cabochon push clasp to reveal a hollow, open compartment inside where matches were once stored to keep them safe and dry. On the bottom is a ridged surface that acts a striker, allowing the owner to easily start a flame. There are French hallmarks on the lip of the opening. This wonderful match safe is as visually appealing as it is useful, and would make a great addition to any collection!

Measurements: The match safe measures approximately 1 3/4" tall, is a little more than 3/4" wide, and 3/8" at the thickest point.

Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold surface or to the sapphires and diamond and the lid opens easily and stays securely closed.
