Lenticular Flicker Kickers Matchbox

Popped into a typically ho-hum local resale shop here yesterday (where I usually never find anything good), and whoa Nelly what do I see? This true gem of a 60's matchbox complete with red flocking and a very cute lenticular flicker image of high kickin' showgirls on the lid. Check out the clip below to see it in action because it's really something. As an added bonus, the thing still contains an unbelievable number of original wooden matches inside. Seriously, there must be like 100 in there-- plus, they're incredibly teeny tiny too! I lit one just to make sure they're real.

I'm a sucker for flocking! Sure, lots of lenticular stuff but we never got anything that cool out of our crackerjack!

Now this was the original GIF.

Thanks for sharing Karswell.

He said, while lounging in nothing but his flocked underwear inside his flocked boudoir!

>Now this was the original GIF.

Haha indeed!

Sweet showgirl action! I love lenticular printing. And playing with fire. And the Science Patrol.
