This little tin was made to commemorate the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977.
Made by the Cornish Match Co., it has nicely detailed photos and graphics in red, navy blue and silver. I love the stylised match head and flame motif running around the lid!
It measures just over 2 inches high and is 2.75" wide.
The base has a brown paper mount for striking matches and it still works with standard British kitchen matches (which are just under 2 inches long). I should think it would work with other types of matches too. Great for its intended use or just to stash small items.
