This is a vert pretty French enamelware allumettes tin for holding matches.  It is in a very nice vintage condition with a few minor rust patches.  

 

Often these tins lose their lids but this one has retained it and the lid is still firmly in place with nice strong hinges.

 

Designed to wall mount this tin has a handy hanging hole at the top.  Very useful hanging near a fire, log burner or woodfired Aga.

 

The tin is a pale greyish blue enamel with a a darker blue and white art deco sun design around the top edge.

 

Size: 12cm x 6cm x H15cm
