This fabulous antique treen match holder is a ribbed barrel with a classic Victorian beaded band wrapped around the center.
The top third of the box is a pressure fit lid with a little piece of old striker paper left. It fits tightly. So when removing, it is best to hold onto the lower portion of wood and not the beaded band. The raised edge of the lid has some chips likely from the striking of matches.
The barrel measures 3-1/2” tall. It measures a little over at the widest.
Condition: there are some beads missing from the band, the steel beads have turned dark and show some rust. Non-smoking home. No unusual smells.
