What does this mean?

Hi Jonathan,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I'm not finding either this model or that mark anywhere despite a fairly exhaustive search. I'm quite sure it's NOT Chinese /Qing dynasty.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An English glazed and painted porcelain match safe
In the form of a Scotsman with binoculars riding a donkey
Unattributed maker, late 19th/early 20th Century
unidentified mark underneath
8 inches high, 7 inches across
PROVENANCE: inherited
$60-80*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
