Owner: Antarctic Heritage Trust, New-Zealand. This object is from the collection of c.18,000 artefacts at Terra Nova Hut, the expedition base built by Captain Robert Falcon Scott and party during his 1910-1913 expedition to Antarctica. The match box is composed of plywood, a blue paper liner and a white paper label printed with black ink. After mechanical cleaning of the object, the different elements have been repaired with Japanese tissue and reshaped in their original format.
