This sterling silver Match safe has both sides hand-engraved with Masonic and York Rite symbolism, each side is different.   I believe that it is English as it has Birmingham hallmarks for 1903 and WHH makers mark.  The recessed striker is on the bottom and measures 2 inches tall by 1 3/4 inches wide.   It is in good condition for its age and has only a few minor dents and scratches from normal daily use.
