This listing is for an antique early 1900's match safe or vesta in the shape of a devils head. This match safe is crafted of solid brass and is mechanical, simply push in the devil's nose and the top of the head pops open to reveal the compartment for the matches. The striker is found on the bottom of the match safe. There have been reproductions of this match safe in both brass and silver, but they lack the details and in addition the horns on the reproductions are plastic and the horns on the originals are carved from natural ox bone like this one. The eyes are made of red glass.

Measures 1 3/4" tall and 1 6/8" across from the tip of the nose to the back of the head.
Beautiful overall condition with no damage and great patina. The latch and hinge are snug and in perfect working order.
