Antique Figural Christopher Columbus Cast Iron Match Safe Holder Striker. THIS is NOT the match safe/holder that you see EVERYWHERE! This is an antique wall mounted match safe resembling Christopher Columbus. You can tell by the quality that this isn’t one of those reproductions from the 1950s. It also has the words “PAT APPL FOR” embossed on the back. Could very well be from the Columbian Exposition in 1893. A nice example of this very old match safe. Measures 4.75 inches tall by 3 inches wide. These dimensions include the mounting holes. It is intended to mounted to a wall. As with most cast iron that is this old you will find age related oxidation and surface rust. The photographs we post are used as part of the description as well as what is written.
