Japanese Matchbook Labels

Such a fine collection of historic design examples from the 1930s. These beautiful matchbox labels from Japan, are now available on eBay for a very limited time. I take great pleasure just gawking at them myself.

  2. Geez, you're right! This seller must have quite an archive, but they are vastly inflated based on the selling price of this lot. Thanks for the tip!
