    Hello everyone.

    Another area of collecting.....vestas, matchsafes and matchbook holders.

    This one seems to be pressed tin, not really sure of age....1930s perhaps?

    It measures about 2 inches x 2 1/2 inches.

    I put a match book in it just for show......

    Does anyone recognize the 2 men in the picture? They look like entertainers of some sort!!

    Thanks for looking, Judy

      Looks like 1930s to me, too. I don't recognize the men on the cover.

      Hiya Tassie. This might have been a souvenir. You go to the peer, get your photo taken with your BFF and popped on your matchbox holder to memorialise the night.
    7. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      Hi Jewels, had not thought of that!! What a good idea lol.....a very dapper looking pair aren't they!! Thanks for that idea.....!!
    8. Jewels1900 Jewels1900, 5 years ago
      They are very dapper. Reminds me of my granddad who was very dapper. He had an awesome mo.

      Judy, I didn't think of that either....Jewels1900 is probably right! Still, I wonder who they were.

      I have a ton of sheet music which pictured singers and singing duos of bygone days--and I am sure I have not seen them on any covers. may have been just some local dudes-- they certainly must have been good "buds" Better yet--I have a feeling they may be brothers. To me they look like brothers..
    19. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      Hello PostCardCollector.....Thanks for thinking of your sheet music.......appreciate you trying to identify them........and you may be right, they do look like brothers don't they!!

      Fabulous, I love the idea @Jewels1900 states - that is such a nice idea. IS it hallmarked at all ?
    24. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      Thanks very much antique silver for the comment and the love! Jewels always has good ideas!!! Something I hadn't thought of lol. No, unfortunately no maker's marks, and only made of pressed tin, not silver, so no hallmarks. Really appreciate your interest!!
