Russian silver match safe book case. The front cover decorated with engraved designs and flowers, 84 imperial silver mark in Moscow,1908-1917.This unit is very unique as it looks like a small cigarette case, but holds a book of matches instead. The operation is working fine. It opens and closes as should, especially due to it's age !! Simply a great old piece!! It measures out at: 2 3/8" tall by 1 5/8" wide and is 3/8" thick. Very good condition.
