    Here is a real treat for you, I knick-named the 'angel', but I believe it is a crinolin lady vesta matchsafe. There is only two of these known in private collections throughout the world that I know of, I believe it was made in Austria, c. 1890, brass body, gilded with a bisque head that is fixed with gauze and a type of cement. Very detailed, what a great talking point this would have been, carrying an angel around in your pocket that lights fire.
