Postnikov

Re: Match box with extra compartment

(Fox)Hunting scene. Believe it to be German; Streich zu, nu brennt et or Strike now it burns
Extra compartment for extra matches. The matches had a specific length. Or for stamps or for a little snuff. You like to keep your matches, stamps and snuff at a dry place.
