Vintage matchbox design:
Some vintage safety matches / matchbox designs I found in the net.
Vintage German matchsticks – Zündhölzer:
Found this cool matches / matchsticks today. Must be at least 20 – 30 years old. Full of smart ass phrases, like
“hast du zündhölzer – hast du feuer!”
– you got matches – you got fire!
“wer immer stets vergleiche zieht – im fachgeschäft den vorteil sieht”
– who constantly compares sees the advantages of buying in a specialist store
“der kluge kopf kauft nur im fachgeschäft”
– the smart head buys only in a specialty store.
The phases could not be more relevant than they are today. I guess at the time these matchsticks were produced – Internet was still far away and supermarkets outlet stores and malls were as well not too omnipresent.
Would love to see these matches soon in one of the shops featured on the right side of my website.
