The enigmatic allure of our Birdseye Maple Matchbox is unmatched. Its distinctive pattern - a swirling figure found in only a select few North American maple trees - is a true wonder of nature. Despite numerous theories, the cause of this figure remains a mystery, lending an air of intrigue to this handcrafted piece. It is a showcase of both nature's elegance and mystique.

    I received my order today. You are wonderful. I loved the care and attention that went into the packaging. The product itself is flawless. Craftsmanship at its finest. Even the smell of the wood mixed with the matchsticks is amazing. Truly well done.

    This candle is gorgeous! It looks amazing styled on top of a couple books or near some ceramics. I love looking at it. I probably won't light it but the company who makes it sells a "refill" so that's good to know. It arrived in a beautiful gift box so this would make a good gift as well.


    Beautiful and well-made. I got this as a gift and it was a huge hit! The box is gorgeous, inside and out.

    I received my restored matchbox last week. You not only replaced the strike strip but also seem to have spruced it up a bit and made the mechanism slide more easil. Thanks for the extra care.

    Lovely box. Adds understated elegance to our guest bath, but would be nice anywhere. Matches that are included are very nice.
