European Collection Item# A22359

Details

Circa 1900. This antique matchsafe features a lovely repousse lily of the valley motif. Matchsafes came into prominence in the mid-1800s with the advent of friction matches. By the early 20th century, it was more permissible for women to smoke in public, so matchsafes sporting feminine designs were made with this clientele in mind. This match case was made in Germany.

Sizing & measurements

This matchsafe measures 30mm across by 5mm wide.
