There was another match case posted here a few weeks ago, and, like yours, it's was an amazingly intricate piece of design. That is a killer find, Nick Happy Have to say...

It's sometimes sad seeing these finds, as it truly makes me wonder how far we've sunk in terms of the products we make/use in this country. That something as simple as a match case could be created with such precision & beauty, given the simple times back then, is astounding. They valued work, durability & craftsmanship, all things that have pretty much fell by the wayside, nowadays.

The individual who owned that was surely one of the few that had some bucks, back then.

Beautiful find Nick!! Finding something like that match safe reminds me of how classy the times were back then. More times than not they were given as gifts to the smokers in the family and engraved with initials too. It's a real shame it was cut in two. I honestly hope you can find the other half. That's not impossible unless somebody else found it. All in all though a real winner of a find!
