Art Nouveau, Silver-Plated Match Case with Strike (Pyrogène), from France, 19th Century


This silver-plated match case with strike (pyrogène) is circa late 1800s, early 1900s and Art Nouveau in design.

From France, it measures 47 x 35 mm. Lid closes with a snap. Hinge intact.

Condition: The case has some significant wear where the plating has rubbed off as well as small areas of damage to the metal (See right hand corner of lid in fifth photo.). Please examine the photos carefully, using the zoom function, and do let me know if you need more as I'll be happy to oblige.

Thank you for looking.
