Seller. Debbie Kendall of The Enlightened Hound.

“Matchbox labels were a low cost way for manufacturers and governments to get a message to the masses. Be it advertising, propaganda or series of artistic images, the small size of the matchbox label presented the artist and designer with a specific set of challenges - how to create a striking, impactful message or design with a canvas of typically 50 x 35mm. Many matchbox labels are little marvels of graphic design that are both desirable and collectible.

This red and black themed collection of 26 original vintage matchbox labels packs a real graphic punch. This colour combination was a favourite on matchbox labels for the simple, strong way it could portray a message. The labels are mainly from Sweden and hail from the 1950s and 1960s - each one featuring a single themed illustration for maximum impact. Professionally mounted with stamp hinges on black card with an off white mount in a custom reclaimed wood frame (to complete the vintage vibe) - hand painted and waxed. Each frame has its own pattern of knots, dinks, scratches, nail holes, wonky edges and aged patina. Fitted with crystal clear acrylic ’glass’ and ready to hang.”
