      Two little things that might be of use. Firstly Snuff boxes were made to be air tight. So they close very well and still present after all these years with a snug closure. They hinges are also very well made. The second point is that vesta cases were made with a small area on the outside on which to strike the match. So if it is a match safe then if you scout the outside you will find an area that has been cross hatched or scored so that it is rough enough to ignite a match.
      I hope this tiny bit of information is of use to you.
      Sincerely,
      Lisa
