Early friction matches were unreliable and highly combustible. In order to avoid having them spontaneously combust within pocket or purse, it was necessary to keep them in a safe case. Match safes came into being the mid 1800's, and they were widely used until the 1920s when they became obsolete with the advent of safety matches.
