BONAL GENTIANE-QUINA MATCH STRIKER

This is a heavy pottery /stone pub match striker is 3 5/8 inches in diameter and 3 1/2 inches tall. The strike were a mainstay in English and French pubs holding the matches upright and struck along the rough side of the piece.

The match strike is in excellent condition, never used.

Since 1865, this delicious aperitif wine has stood apart for its exceptional complexity, delightful flavors and stimulating palate. Serious to its role as aperitif, it was known as 'ouvre l'appétit' - the key to the appetite. Found popular with sportsmen, Bonal became an early sponsor of the Tour de France. It is made by an infusion of gentian, cinchona (quinine) and renown herbs of the Grand Chartreuse mountains in a Mistelle base.
