Unique Antique Victorian Figural Brass Pig, Match Safe, and Go To Bed Case. Dates to the late 19th century. Under the pigs belly is the vesta striker and the pigs head hinges to reveal the compartment for holding the vestas. On the top of the nose of the pig is a hole to put the lit vesta in to enable light to go to bed. This little pig measures about 2âe long. It is in good condition no dents but he is missing his tail . This auction is only for the match striker/holder. This is a lovely rare vesta and would make a great Christmas gift or wonderful addition to any collection. I will be posting more antique figural pig items this week. Keep checking my other auctions.
