Marble’s Gladstone Mich USA Patd 1900 Match Safe With Striker Body Vintage. A piece of emergency equipment that every hunter, camper, or hiker should have, the match safe is a screw-it-closed water-resistant metal container for wooden kitchen matches. There is a ring at the top to which one may attach a strap or chain for secure carrying of the match safe.

To open the match safe, with the ring off to the side so that it does not block the end, turn the body of the match safe within its framework. When the body of the match safe has been fully unscrewed, it can be swung out to one of the sides, but cannot be swung out to the other side. Before swinging it out ensure that the open end will be pointed up. The interior then is exposed, allowing one to put matches into or remove matches from the match safe. If the open end was not pointed up, you may now be playing match pick-up. Reverse the above to close it. It holds 17-19 wooden kitchen matches. Will be shipped without the matches.

Every BoyScout and outdoorsman owned and carried one of these. Modern plastic substitutes exist but, like most plastic substitutes, just are not as satisfying as having the real thing.
