wooden all hand carved wall hanger,that was for matches and tobacco,made in the late 1800s.The golden age of matchsafes was around 1870 until the 1930s, when matchbooks and cigarette lighters obviated the need for most match holders. At home, wall and tabletop matchsafes were used, primarily by women for domestic uses such as lighting a stove. In fact, stove manufacturers often made cast-iron match holders, which were mounted to a wall in the kitchen to keep the matches handy.
So a rare real deal here,no reproduction.
Not often you come across one in this condition and beautifully and so finely carved of this age.
Has a little paint in the top left and lower side,but can be removed by the buyer.Still has a great shine to it overall and excellent condition.It was made by my great grandfatherlater on it was hanging in my grandfathers shed in the early 1900s until late 1900s ,thus the paint marks.And been wrapped and stored since then
A great item for any collector. This is a great handmade antique item.
