A charming pipe smoking anthromorphic bear, carved from Swiss Lime wood he is a fine figural matchbox holder, match safe and ashtray all in one.
He looks to be pretty jolly smoking his pipe, he has a hole through the hand to hold a single match and a space on his back to carry /hold a matchbox.
There is an ashtray adjoined at the side with a lift out metal tray that collects the Ash, this has Champery carved into the front which is likely where the bear was made c1900 he may have been a souvenir piece.
He is in good antique condition, there is a chip on his foot and a piece of the wood has come away (see photos) aside from that the condition is very good.
