    Thank you so much, Wargriff! I take it that $15 total is a good price for it?

    Thanks Walkwolf and Eric. The carton is very old and almost falling apart. I would bring this thing out if I had another one. Would be an interesting conversation piece if someone needed a light.

    These brass trench art matchbox holders were still popular even into WWII. They are great collectables ! William
