20th century Matchbox label.
Paper label from a small box of matches manufactured in India. 1 3/4 x 1/14 inches.
Aruna Match Works in the town of Walajapet, Tamil Nadu were a major supplier of matches and used many images on their boxes in order to attract buyers
Matchbox labels were once a common collectable, just as stamps still are, but with the decline in using matches they are now rarely seen.
Not important in the slightest, other than confirming how much clocks and watches are part of everyday life, but still fun. In fine condition showing that it has been fixed with a stamp album mount at some point.
