Tartan Ware 'Go-To-Bed' Match Holder, Victorian
A very charming tartan ware ‘go-to-bed’ match holder. The ‘go-to-bed’ would take the place of the candle as the person would light the match on the striker on the underside and place the match in the small circular eyelet set into the top of the lid.
This small tartan piece is 2 1/4 inches high and 1 1/4 inches wide. Other than the rough wear to the emory striker this is in very nice condition with no loss to the tartan pattern.
