Really cool old ornate match safe, also known as a vesta. Back in the day before people had lighters, they used matches and it was important to keep your matches dry so they would keep them in a match safe. The one picture shows the bottom where you would strike your match. I am not sure how old it is, it does have some markings but they are mostly worn out. I had it tested, it is not silver, but it is highly collectible none the less. $75
