Handmade Match Box

Post by Joshoowah » Wed Mar 28, 2018 11:47 pm

The wife and I were perusing through a local shop here, where I came across this little bugger:

There were a variety of these things, some with lions, cheetah, elephant, zebra, hippo, kingfishers, crested crane, etc. All are handmade out of local wood and then either painted or printed with a design (the one pictured is hand-painted). Fits small matchboxes.

That's very nice. I've been using matches lately, rather than a butane lighter.
