This print is of a great matchbook from the Alps Castle Restaurant in Preakness New Jersey that was in business during the 1940's. The cover on this "Feature Matchbook" shows the building and a map of the area. The wide matches are die cut like wine bottles, and printed with an image of the band that entertained the diners. Altogether, this matchbook was a "gem" of advertising. It would look especially good in a den.

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 it can be enjoyed by others. The prints have 11"x14" mats - ready to be put into standard frames. The last image shown is not part of this item - it is a sample of what the mat looks like with a vertical print. (The words Matchbook Memories do not appear on the print) It will be mailed in a bubble type envelope with cardboard backing to protect it from damage during shipment.

Vintage Alps Castle Matchbook Print - Musical Theme - Preakness New Jersey includes a Band in Blue and Orange colors. Restaurant ad.
