Civil War era revenue marked – Match Box & Matches



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Measuring approximately 3 5/8 x 1 5/8 in diameter, this little turned wood matchbox bares the original label, Swift & Courtney's/ Parlor Matches,/ Wilmington, Delaware/ New York Office, 141 Maiden Lane. retains a Civil War vintage revenue stamp. With a full complement of abrasion material on the bottom and examples of the period stick matches inside, this rather crudely turned matchbox will serve the Civil War personal item enthusiast, period tobacciana or lighting collector well. note: Per Horace Greely’s The Great Industries of the United States while a form of the company (Tatnall, Swift & Courtney) began manufacture in 1854 Tatnal sold out in July 1861 thus creating Swift & Courtney which manufactured as such until a May 1870 merger.
