The Vintage Kriegsmarine Matchbox is a vintage propaganda matchbox from the German government that was produced during World War II. These matchboxes feature a scene that pays tribute to the Kriegsmarine which saw great success in the Atlantic Ocean during World War II.
The Vintage Kriegsmarine Matchbox is an example of Axis propaganda during World War II. To increase the morale of soldiers and civilians in Germany the government placed patriotic scenes on common items like these safety matches that were widely used by the German public. Each time a soldier or civilian would have a cigarette, they would see this scene of the proud Kriegsmarine on the ocean fighting for Germany.
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.
