Description

This wonderful tramp art holder was constructed from a cigar box by an enterprising artist , probably in the '20's or 30's. It features some nice primitive carving & five decorative knobs which we believe are wood, painted to look like stone. Over sized at 7.5" tall & 5" wide. Good vintage condition. One section on the right hand side of the life is missing as can been seen in the photos. It happened many years ago & does not detract from the charm of this work. This is a nice piece of hand made American folk art. Originally built to hold matches but it also serves nicely as a business card holder in today's world.
