Here is an original vintage Pre-Prohibition Anheuser Busch Brewery match safe or Vesta case. Nickel plated brass measuring approx. 2.5 x 1.25 inches, with striker on bottom.
Vesta cases or pocket match safes were small portable boxes made in a great variety of forms with snap shut covers to contain Vestas (short matches) and keep them dry or from igniting. A distinguishing characteristic of match safes is that they have a ribbed surface, usually on the bottom, for lighting the matches.
