: SOLD : Antique Matches Box ‘Villeroy et Boch’
A beautiful collectable early 1900's ceramic 'Allumettes' box from France with original wooden lid. This little box originally hung on the wall & used to store matches was manufeactured by 'Villeroy & Boch'.
Born in 1748, 'Villeroy & Boch' is one of the most famous European ceramic company. Their vintage pieces are now hard to find and really sought after.
Definitely not in perfect condition, with some wear and tear due to age such as color variation and a crack on one corner as shown on pictures. Although the piece is still very solid, the crack hasn't move in years and years and can still be hung on the wall without any problem.
Looks absolutely lovely as a wall decor, or on an open shelf in the kitchen. The perfect place to keep your keys (or matches!) Or a unique gift for anyone who loves France.
Measures: 10.5 x 14 x 8.5cm.
