Camano Island Vintage is pleased to offer this bright copper engraved large matchbox cover. It features beautiful shiny copper with scalloped edges and has an engraved scene on the front of 2 people fishing in a boat on a mountain lake with the mountains in the background. It is also engraved NORGE for Norway. This cover is on a large size "kitchen match" matchbox. It measures about 4 inches long by 2 ½ inches wide by 1 ½ inches tall.
This item is in excellent vintage condition with very few scratches. I can't tell if the cardboard matchbox, itself, is removeable or if you just refill it. The carboard “drawer” slides out and is full of wood stick matches but I see that they are illegal to send in the mail so I will have to remove the matches before mailing. Other than the striking strip on the side, this can easily be used as a trinket box as well. You can also replace the inner matchbox with a new one if desired.
I have over 1000 vintage items in my store ranging from jewelry to clothes, purses to collectibles, books to ephemera. Please click the link to the main page of my shop to see all the categories and items:
Please keep in mind that vintage items have been worn and loved and all are at least 20 years old, most even older. Due to age, there may be certain areas of wear or other imperfections that are inherent to vintage items. I will always mention significant damage or wear but please do not expect things to look like “new” items.
