Pocket Match Safe - Silver Plated Tin

(7 reviews) Write a Review
Silver plated match safe, closed

We are excited to be offering a reproduction of an original mid-19th century match safe from our collection.  The reproduction is made from silver plated brass, as the original, and has correct construction, identical to the original, throughout the piece.  It has the striking grid at the bottom of the safe to aid in striking matches, just as the original.  We're not aware of anyone else that has reproduced these, so are excited to be offering such a unique piece to the living history and museum community!

    Really nice quality and practicality. No longer have to worry about matchboxes getting smashed up or losing matches.

    Pocket match safe, silver

    Very nice, heavy duty match safe. Will fit standard strike anywhere matches. The latch pops open a little too easily if bumped, but overall a good, durable case.

    Match Safe

    This is a great upgrade from the square, tin match safes you normally see at sutlers (which I’ve never seen a 19th C. original of). Holds an entire book of matches and the strike face works really well with strike anywhere matches.

    Just what I've been looking for!

    I have several original match safes, but don't like to carry them in the field. This repro fills the bill very well. Fits well in the pocket and makes a nice interpretive prop, since very few people today know what a match safe is.

    If you've been looking for a match safe and cannot afford an original, or tired of those sutler row versions. This is the item for you. It's terrific.
