Early 1900s Fireside Carved Rosewood Match Box Bone Inlay

Tags:, ,

A beautiful Asian match box. It has two carved rosewood sides and also the hinged top. Felt lined. Bone and mother of pearl inlaid border. Just a wonderful piece.  This is a fairly large match box made to house tall fireplace matches. Early 20th century.

Is approximately 11 x 7.5 x 3.5 inches. There is a split on the base but it does not through and through. Otherwise no damage noted. Could use a good cleaning.
