Decorative Antique French Allumettes Box, a wall-hanging enamelware match box from France. Adds a storied accent to your French country cuisine, and is just as happy to sit on your kitchen counter as be hung near the range! Originally used to hold matches, this aged beauty is white and decorated with a gorgeous light blue color, and classic gold striped design. This particular design is more rare to find, the luxury gilt letters and striped detail made these more expensive when they were produced than most of the other designs, therefore less were sold.
This pastel blue and white box has wear and chipped enamel, the original lid works well, such a lovely piece. To hold kitchen matches, or to add sweet French flair to your antique enamelware collection. Display to showcase your own personal style at home. For those of you who love French Country pieces with the grace of time. Measures 6" x 3" x 7-1/2"h.
