Hand Painted Folk Art Matchstick Holder

Hand Painted Folk Art Matchstick Holder


This hand painted wooden matchstick holder is a really cute throw back to the folk art themes that emerged in the 1970's. It has the bright colors of that time, with a red heart and a happy little blue bird, complimented by some flowers and vines. It is a very simple piece, but it captures your eye, in it's presentation. Useful too - it stores longer matches and keeps them at the ready in the kitchen, back porch, laundry room or other places that a light is needed.

The holder has a small pinhole in the top middle section for hanging from a nail or brad. You could also hang it from some twine, although it would not hang evenly based on the heart cut out design from which it would hang. It is made from a very light craft wood and that has been stained a medium brown. It is in over all very good condition with no significant scuff marks on the painted design.

On the back is a stamp indicating it came from The Carpenter Shop Traverse City Michigan. Most likely sold as a souvenir of Northern Michigan.


11 1/2" tall X 6" wide at the widest X 2 3/4" deep at the deepest
