Vesta or match safe in the form of an eagle
Before the invention of ''safety'' matches, vestas or match safes held matches ''safely'' in one''s pocket, lest the matches would ignite while being carried. The figural ones are quite collectible. This eagle vesta is brass with glass eyes, circa 1880. $525 We accept VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, and AMERICAN EXPRESS. We are happy to send items on approval.
