Boxwood go to bed

This "Go To Bed" is made of boxwood, and has a very good feel, and patina. 19th. century. It's 2 and 3/4" tall, with the match holder tip included. Said match holding tip is very small, I had to shave the modern strike anywhere match in order to fit. The top is threaded onto the base, and on that base usually there was a piece of emery paper on which to strike the match. It was worn smooth and was very loose, thus it does need a new one. They were replaced as needed. A handsome desk accessory used to melt the sealing wax. Shipping and insurance included.
