This print shows the unusual "Pull Quick" style of matches made in the early 1940's. The Diamond Match Company, that made them, is credited with the discovery in 1910, of the chemical formula for safer matches that eliminated the dangerous poisons and explosive tendencies of earlier matches . The company donated its patent to the public in order to make matches safer everywhere.
Most people keep matchbooks in bowls or notebooks. I put mine on the wall so that they can be fully appreciated, since all sides are shown at once. This is the design I made for this matchbook, and prints are available so that other people can enjoy it too. The prints have 11"x14" mats - ready to be put into standard frames. (The words Matchbook Memories do not appear on the print). Colors could vary due to the fact that all monitors do not have the exact same settings.
STYLE VARIATION OFFER: The large drawing image of the Brown Derby itself, without the other smaller element is available as a variation. It is a print of the large image only. It would come matted in an 11 x 14 inch white mat as the other prints do. Please let me know if you prefer this variation. It would take an extra day for me to adjust the design.
