I estimate this match holder, or match safe as being from around the 1940s. The exact date is unknown to me as I purchased it at an estate sale. I believe it is made of tin.
It stands 6 inches tall, 3 inches side to side, 3.25 inches front to back at the 'lip" at the bottom. Right now, it is very rustic looking due to years of age and a little rust covering. If desired, steel wool will remove the rust. It could then be painted, or stickers applied, or just keep it at its metal finish.
It's not just for matches either. Some other uses would be to hold flowers, small kitchen utensils, pens and pencils. A while back I saw one as bathroom decor holding a toothbrush and tube of toothpaste. Let you imagination roam.
Other than having a light layer of rust, the condition is good with no dents or cracks. The very top, by the hole to hang it on a wall, the metal has a slight bend. That bend can be straightened out if desired.
Delivery will be via USPS First Class Mail. Buyer to pay $4.95 delivery charges. Shipping is from Arizona.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
