Antique Match Safe/vesta in the shape of a elephant head. This is a very old match safe. The top is hinged and is tight. The elephants wrinkled trunk is the knurled area were the match head would strike. It was once silver plated but now it shows mostly brass. Measures 2 3/4" tall and 2 1/4" wide. This big match-safe will be a prize possession of yours. This vintage brass metal match safe dates from the mid nineteenth century. Both sides have the same design. Very nice shape for the age. There are no splits, no breaks, and no repairs. Lid opens to almost 90 degrees and closes with a secure click. Hinge is excellent. The collectors have been hard after these and that makes them hard to find. Will hold the large kitchen matches. We include a box of good strike anywhere matches with the safe. Just think of the looks you will get when you pull this out of your vest pocket and light your cheroot. I could just see P.T. Barnum with this in hand when he was showing off JUMBO.
