Match safes were popularized in the late nineteenth century, associated with the advent of friction matches. These matches had an unfortunate tendency to burst into flames when loose inside of a user's pocket, necessitating the use of the match safe to reduce friction. The etching on the brass band surrounding the match safe provided an easy and accessible striking surface.
