These seven vintage matchbooks or box matches are so elegant with their metallic gold covers and pastel crests.

The crests on the front say "La Petite" and are outlined in white with pastel blue, pink or green within the crest. The backs of the boxes are warm yellow gold with a metallic gold criss-cross diamond pattern. The matchboxes were made in Sweden and may be from the 1960s.

These tiny matchboxes are full of around 25 matches and have striking strips on both sides of the box. The tiny wooden matches have metallic gold tips. Gorgeous!

The matchboxes measure 1 5/8" by 1 1/8" by 3/8". They are made out of cardboard and slide open.

They are all in good vintage condition except for a few scratches on some of the boxes' strike strips and one which has a slightly crushed corner. They look wonderfully old!
