Leather Match Safe in Rare Slide Style Circa 1900

Offered is an unusual slide style, leather bound match safe in excellent condition made by "Specialty Service Corp." of Des Moines, IA. This match safe is circa pre 1900 and measures 2 3/4" long by 1 1/2" wide. In order to open one must pull on the match striking end and it will slide out and then just push to close, similar to a drawer. Opposite the match striking end there is a small patch of decorative matching leather.

The advertisement printed on the leather face is barely legible and all but gone. But under a good light and magnification the heading reads "M***hesier Candy Company" then the phrase "Matchless Quality" and "Striking Service". A little play on words. A handsome addition to any collection. Please e-mail us with any questions.
