This lot of 3 Vintage Matchbooks were made by Universal Match Corp., Philadelphia. Circa 1940’s or so. Matchbooks are full – no missing matches.
Great advertising pieces for ship transport across Chesapeake Bay. One side shows the S.S. Princess Anne which operated between Kiptopeke and Little Creek, Virginia. The other side shows the S.S. Pocahontas, “The World’s Most Luxurious Passenger And Auto Transport”.
Overall good condition for their age, with a light bit of wear here and there.
Big Ship Salvage scours the world for nautical antique lights, décor and other items related to the Nautical Life. Brass, copper, stainless steel and sometimes aluminum materials are used to make-up the vintage lights that we find. We soda-blast the old paint off, remove the old wiring and polish before they arrive in our warehouse. Then, we rewire with UL listed bulb sockets and wiring harnesses and get ready for purchase. They are now ready to warm your home, business or restaurant with that nautical feeling we all desire.
