The Vintage Soviet Army Glory Matchbox is an excellent example of the propaganda that was found during the time of the Soviet Union. Leadership of the Soviet Union had items like these matches produced to ensure the population was given a constant message of the success of the Soviet system of which the Soviet Army played a significant role in USSR society.
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.
