About this item

On offer is this lovely collectible pairing. Both items are in good condition overall, the chrome plating shines up well still - light scratches and tarnish/ ware areas on the reverse of the matchbook holder but as highlighted in the photos this has only added to the aged charm and character of the set.

Both items - matchbook holder and scent flask - are of traditional form and have been decorated with an enamel on copper applied plaque to one side showing the "NEC Exhibition".

The holder hinges open to reveal the original gilded interior - aged ware as expected. The flask has a screw top which doesn't leak.

Unmarked for a maker but produced as souvenirs from the exhibition, circa 1930's.

They are of charmingly small size with the flask measuring 6.5cm (2 and 1/2 inches) including the neck and top!

A delightful historical duo ready to be collected and enjoyed once again!
