Burlwood Matchsafe, ca. 1910
Its dimensions are
5 x 4 x 1.4 cm (1 15/16 x 1 9/16 x 9/16 in. )
It has the following markings
Possible maker's mark impressed in diamond shape, only partially legible. Additional, possibly maker's name, appears to be "JANESICH" (however, the "J" is blurred and may in fact be another letter). Third stamp is an eagle's head for France (possibly Paris). All marks stamped on intereior bezel of lid. With regard to possible maker's marks, the blue Brenner books in AAID notes the following: "Marked, 'Halsi-.' Maker: M. JANESICH." I do not see Halsi nor the letter M. anywhere on the box.
