Match Safe

Head over to Colorado Lady's blog to see more Vintage Thingies!

I found this little treasure in the back of a cabinet at my Mom's house. It needs to be cleaned up a bit but looks pretty good. You can see on the side an opening where the box shows through so you can strike the matches.

That is so cheery looking! I seem to remember my grandma or a great-aunt having one of these. Nice to see one again!

How fun is that wonderful treasure and really in good condition. A friend has one in her quilt shop that she uses for paper clips...it hangs on the wall beside her train case cash register. Thanks for sharing for VTT.

I have one of those laying around somewhere. That was all the go many years ago. You still find them, but they are not vintage.
