With the image of the mythical god, Mercury on the front, this is an antique matches holder that measures 3&1/4 inches tall, by 2&1/4 wide. It is made of tin, and has a rough, "striker" along the bottom, and a pre drilled hole at the top for hanging on a wall. There is surface age to the silver tone metal, and what looks like old glue residue on the back. No marks. Circa 1900.
I currently have other matches holders in my shop, and am happy to combine shipping. To see them all, type the word, "match holder", in the California Girls search box at the top of this page
If you are ordering more than 1 item from my shop, wait to pay until I send back an invoice with the combined shipping discount.
