Antique Painted Cast Iron Figural Butterfly Match Safe

This beautiful paint decorated cast iron match safe, representing a butterfly in flight, is one of only 3 that I have ever seen. I believe it to represent the Monarch Butterfly. It was probably made in the 1920's.

It is unsigned by the maker.

Approximate Dimensions: Width of wings 5", Height 2", Length 4 3/4".

Condition: As found, no evidence of damage or repairs. Minor paint  chipping as would be expected from age and use (see photos).
