The Vintage German Blue SS Matchbox is another example of the use of propaganda on commonly used items during World War II in Germany. Soldiers, civilians, and government forces would see this image symbolizing the SS and strength of the German Armed Forces. With each cigarette lit, the Germans would be reminded of the achievements of their mighty army.
We found these matchboxes in the Baltics and knew we wanted to import them. Due to regulations on shipping matches and wood products, we had all of the original matches removed to satisfy US Customs regulations. No worry though, we've put 10 brand new wooden matches into each box, allowing you to display the matchbox or use it as intended at your next historical event.
