This Scrattleware smoking piece is quite elaborate looking. Not only does this smoke stand house cigarettes, it also houses wooden matches and has its own striker. These pieces were made in the early 1900’s.
I feel the smoking stand is not only handsome to look at but I think the subject matter has a lot of appeal. The match holder is formed like a woven basket with two handles. There is a tree stump in front of the large rock stand that would house the cigarettes. To the left of the stand is a large shallow basket with an ax in its bottom. I am assuming the basket was used for placement of the used wooden matches. On the front portion of the stand is the strike surface.
The only mark on the bottom of the stand is a stamp consisting of “A – 25”. The overall condition of this smoke stand is very good. There is some minor chipping around the base of the piece. There are no cracks or hairlines.
The piece is 8 ½” long X 6” wide X 3 ¾” high, circa 1900.
