This is a collectible vintage German cast metal painted match holder, with a couple of cute cats standing on their back legs with whiskers and a grey-blue matte finish. The actual match holder is a stylized painted barrel on the ground behind the sweet pair of cats. The copper-red painted base bears the words "Endlich Allein! -- " or "Alone at Last!" in English.
The match holder is in excellent vintage condition with moderate age-appropriate wear and patina. It has some minor paint loss, only really noticeable under scrutiny. The match holder measures 3 1/4 inches tall and 2 3/4 inches wide.
