This is a Metlox Poppytrail match safe in the Homestead pattern, ready to mount on a wall. It’s in the familiar blue on mottled blue and white, depicting a farm house and trees. Molded as a single piece, it is made to look like a little china spice box with a drawer; the china box holds the match box which spills its matches into the little open drawer, ready to be taken out to light the stove. Measures 7 5/8” tall x 4 ¼” wide at widest x 5” deep at deepest. Marked Poppytrail/By Metlox/Made in California on underside. Excellent condition, no chipping, cracks, scratches or crazing. This piece is pristine. Dark areas in some photos are shadows; photos 6 and 7 are accurate.
