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 on a canvas. Many matchbox labels are little marvels of graphic design that are both desirable and collectible. This oversize original vintage matchbox label hails from Czechoslovakia, around the middle of last century. In the classic red and black colour combination favoured by matchbox designers for maximum impact, the key motif might represent a key to someone's heart, a new home or a locked box! Individually and professionally mounted with stamp hinges on black card with an off white double 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.”
