    This is a cool Silver Elf marked 925 on his collar. I have no idea what it was used for. It has a nice retention mechanism that works great when it is snapped shut. It is about 2.5 inches tall and about 1.5 inches wide, and it weighs 4.4 oz. The greenish tints that you see are not really there. It must be a reflection. It has some writing on the bottom, but I can't make it out. If someone knows what this piece was used for I would appreciate your input.
    Thanks

      It's a match safe.
    2. pops52 pops52, 7 years ago
      See the striker on the bottom
    3. pops52 pops52, 7 years ago
      Also called a Vesta case.

      Isn't he Mr Punch?
    8. Vintagefran Vintagefran, 7 years ago
      Great vrgdc, agree with Vetraio, it looks like Mr Punch :)
    9. Vrgdc Vrgdc, 7 years ago
      Mr Punch? That's a new on on me.
    10. Manikin Manikin, 7 years ago
      Very nice and he looks like Punch to me also :-)
    11. Vrgdc Vrgdc, 7 years ago
      Vetraio50, Vintagefran, and Manikin,
      I just looked up Mr. Punch and I would have to agree that it does look like Mr. Punch. Thanks for your input.
    12. Manikin Manikin, 7 years ago
      If he is Punch I wonder if it was part of a set and Judy was also made ? He is a cool dude for sure :-)
    13. Manikin Manikin, 7 years ago
      He is Punch :-)

      Thanks Manikin! I looked at the link that you provided. It's very nice, but different than this guy. It says at the top in product description 100% brand new. I didn't think that still made match safes any more.
    15. Vrgdc Vrgdc, 7 years ago
      I guess it is referring to its condition not its age.
    16. Manikin Manikin, 7 years ago
      I also saw a old one but couldn't bring link up it sold on ebay a year ago . Exactly like yours . The link doesn't say if it is a repro of older version which I believe it is .

      Hey Vrgde, Check out this link:
      http://www.collectorsweekly.com/user/matchsaferunner

      His email address is in his profile. He might be able to answer any questions you may have about your match safe. I have contacted him before regarding match safes.

      Thanks pops52 and Manikin. I'll look into these leads. Thanks

      Not sure if there was a Judy case, but there was a dog that Mr Punch had in the show called Toby.
    20. surfdub66 surfdub66, 7 years ago
      He's definatly mr punch , continental silver from europe , I have a devil head one that ill list soon also .925 silver .. I would say yours dates mid 1900s whereas mine is 70s/80s..
    21. surfdub66 surfdub66, 7 years ago
