Old Edwardian solid silver art nouveau matchbox holder case. Fully hallmarked inside for sterling silver (lion passant) by silversmith William Comyns & sons (W.C) London (Leopards head) 1905 (k). The original hard board Bryant & May special safety match box is still with it.

Measurements are 3" x 2" x 1"

The engraving is superbly nouveau on the front with ornate cherubs making it an ideal gift for a christening box. Originally made as a matchbox case it could be used to hold cards for the more discernible owner.

I do not weigh silver as it is being sold as an objet d'art and I do not clean it (the discretion of the new owner). Please do not buy if you intend to melt down for scrap. If you would to see more Sterling Silver treasures. Please see the Sterling Silver Marks section at

I also have a unique selection of Used Books & Old Maps treasures. Please see the Used Books & Old Maps section at http://www.etsy.com/shop/Yesteryearessentials?section_id=10389451

Frequently asked questions about Yesteryearessentials

Your purchases are always carefully wrapped and very well protected for shipping.

Each purchase is gift wrapped in vintage brown paper and string to give the impression of having stepped back in time. Enjoy :)
All our items are vintage/antiques and most have had decades of use. A buyer of vintage objects should assume a baseline of wear. I am always honest and clear in my descriptions and always endeavor to point out any flaws to avoid disappointment but I cannot disclose every minute sign of use on our items as it would be impossible to do so. You should assume these are present unless we specify otherwise here at the beginning of the condition report.

Please do not hesitate to request additional photographs should you wish to inspect the item in more detail before purchasing it or if you have any questions at all that are not answered in my description. I normally respond to enquiries very quickly.
All of our items are fully insured in case of damage or loss during the shipping process.

In the event an item is damaged, we will require your co-operation to process the claim. You must provide photographs of the damaged item, photographs of the packaging received (inside and out) and any other information required by the insurance carrier.

Once the claim has been approved by the insurance carrier, we will provide a full (or a partial refund if this has been agreed upon between the buyer and us).
