- More Details
This is a 1890's Silveroin (alloy not sterling) Match Safe depicting the Fox & Hounds Hunt on Horseback. It is in excellent condition and the scene is on both sides. It has a striker grid on the bottom. The top is hinged, working great and tension loaded. Hunting and Fishing scenes in vintage match safes are scarce and thus hard to come by. These early match safes were used to carry wooden matches in the vest or jacket before 1910 when the matchbook was invented and patented. Please click on it's image to see additional closeups!
