This vintage match holder is unmarked but definitely a Torquay pottery pieces. It is decorated with green polka dots and blue and yellow stylized flowers on a creamy yellow background, and the incised motto "Strike me and I'll light". The holder is glazed with the exception of the outside of the bowl which is unglazed and ridged to provide the striker. The holder is approximately 1.75 inches tall with a diameter of .875 inches at the top opening and of 3.125 inches at the base. There is light crazing and some darkening of the brown color on the bowl that does not detract and is an indicator of age and use and the holder is excellent condition. This attractive match holder has an appealing folk art look and would make a wonderful addition to a collection of vintage smoking paraphernalia or Torquay pottery.
