Grenfell Figural Match Safe

Ref: 6354

SOLD

A wonderful carved and polychrome painted wooden match safe in bird form manufactured by Grenfell Industries of Labrador circa 1930. The top is on a simple screw post and can be opened by pushing the tail sideways. This piece is very similar in style and paint to the Grenfell bookends and weather vanes that we’ve handled in the past. What is particularly nice about this piece is that the original label is still present on the underside, although it has darkened considerably over time – upon close examination “LABRADOR” can still be seen. This is the first of these we’ve encountered.

Dimensions: 5.75"x1.75"x3"
