STERLING ANTIQUE MATCH HOLDER with STRIKE: Gorgeous ornate antique Sterling Silver Match Holder with a Striking Surface designed into the base, dating to the late 19th Century, circa: 1890. Beautiful fluted / ribbed design on each side---each side slightly different. The base of the piece measures 3" in diameter and is marked Sterling on the underside. In height the piece measures 1 3/4" and weighs approximately 2 ounces. The antique Match Strike/Match Holder is not monogrammed and is in fine condition----one small portion of the base is very slightly bent; in otherwise fine condition (could easily be straightened). Shows well in the photos; prettiest and more detailed in person! (note some photos a bit blurry). Photographs taken with and without a camera flash.
