The Fascinating World of Japanese Matchboxes – Vintage, Simple, Elegant
A matchbox is not only useful in everyday life, but also a wonderful piece of art. Don’t you believe it? Then you should plunge into the fascinating world of Japanese matchboxes decorated with small but real works of art.
These boxes were produced between the 1920s and ’40s, the harsh and unambiguous days in Japan. Nevertheless, the labels on them are simply the quintessence of Eastern simplicity and elegance, as if the spirit of militarism and similar nonsense did not prevail among the artists in the productions.
