Silver Matchbox Covers

As matchboxes and matchbooks were often made from cardboard or thin wood, matchbox and matchbook covers were manufactured to protect the matches in more durable materials. The main cities of silver matchbox cover manufacture were Birmingham and London, with Levi and Salaman being a notable manufacturer who were well known for their matchbox covers engraved with cathedrals and monuments. Steppes Hill Farm Antiques has a range of antique silver matchbox and matchbook covers from the early twentieth century available to buy, and we would be glad to offer you our expert advice on any of our antique collectibles.
