This would be an excellent addition to those wanting to collect Antique Match Safes (Vestas) since it is very similar to some of the match safes. Some collectors like to specialize in particular themes (exotic women, Indians, horses, etc.) Some, like me, like to have an extensive eclectic collection of whatever attracts me. One should always first buy those items which you like. Since no-one has a crystal ball as to what the market for anything will be in the future, one must first and foremost enjoy one's collection. History has shown that high quality antiques appreciate the majority of the time, so appreciation is a bonus to pride of possession.
