Antique Firefighter Memorabilia

Find all of our antique and vintage items. Video Translation: Hey, this is Jennifer here with City Farmhouse Antiques and I have a rare find of the week to share with you today. This is actually a piece of history of firefighter memorabilia. What makes it really cool and really timely is it says Christmas Greetings on the bottom which also makes it a piece of advertising memorabilia which is always really sought after and collectible. This piece, in addition to being a firefighter collectible, is also a Christmas collectible. This is actually an antique match safe. You can see the date is marked 1915 and it is sterling silver. I have left it in its natural form and not polished it. I like to do that because sometimes people like them like that and then I leave it up to the buyer if they want to polish it or not. This is actually a very rare piece. You can see this firefighter is carrying a child out of a burning building. This would be an awesome gift for a firefighter in your family and this is a neat piece of American history. This piece opens. The hinge is very tight. Let's see if I can do this one handed. You can see that your matches would have gone in here. Here is the back. It is like a hammered silver texture. This piece is in very good condition considering it was produced in 1915. When you think about it, I am actually holding something that is over a 100 years old in my hand.  A great piece of advertising memorabilia which is awesome. I just love this little find. This piece will be up on our website at www.cityfarmhouseantiques.com where we have all kinds of antiques and cool things. This would be a great gift for a firefighter in your life or if you know of someone that collects rare and hard to find antiques. We have lots of other great gifts and gift ideas on the website for others as well as different home decor types of things.
