I like the mix of simple and extravagant in this one! The box itself is made of brick. But the ornate handles are of gold, formed as entwined snakes.
On the head of each snake sits a cabochon sapphire, and between their noses they hold a pearl. The size of the box is 2.1'' x 4.5'' x 1.9'' (5.3 x 11.5 x 4.9 cm), and it was bought by King Edward VII. Now the match holder is part of the Royal Collection.
