Authentic Antique French Art Deco Toleware Match Box - Red, Gold and Green with Black Trim and Lettering
Made in France in the early 20th century (1900's-1920's)
Labelled "Allumettes" for matches


Original, not a reproduction.

This exquisite and unusual match box with stylized black lettering spelling out "Allumettes" (matches) is a very old kitchen piece that would have hung in nearly every kitchen in France (and throughout Europe). It is an example of the finest French Art Deco style.

This rare toleware box with its hinged lid and strike pad still intact is in good condition with wear consistent with its age. It is highly collectible and gorgeous when hung on the kitchen wall filled with flowers or just as it is!! Please take a close look at the photos. You'll see the strike pad for lighting the matches on the front.
