Box set containing Nine Assorted Boxes of Funny Match Jokes

Put out by Davenports circa 1920s to1930s, the box contained a variety of matchbox jokes and novelties. For example, a matchbox that will not open, one that squeaks when you pick it up, and one containing small coloured wooden blocks from which patterns can be made. Some of the matchboxes have on their labels the demon head trademark of Davenports and the initials LD.
