Fostoria American Match Box and Cover

Match Box ~ Hair Pin Box & Cover

Smoking Accessories

Item Number:  CC-05
Approximate Size:  3½” L – 1¾” W – 1½” H
Production Dates:  1918-1924 (when sold as a “Match Box”)

This little box went by two names – the Match Box and the Hair Pin Box & Cover.  This item was first introduced in 1915 as the Hair Pin Box, and stayed in production under that same name until approximately 1925.  It is important to note that this box was only referred to as a “Match Box” when it was used in the crystal 5-Piece Boudoir Set from 1918-1924.  During those same years, this item was available for purchase as a solo Hair Pin Box, or one could purchase the Boudoir Set (which contained the exact same box, labeled as a Match Box).
