Here is a very old Porcelain match holder made in the early 1900's in England. There is a charming young lad sitting on the side of this beautiful white weaved basket with a brown trim and beautiful dimensional floral design of lily of the valley. The young lad is sporting a brown cap and attire that matches the color of the basket trim. In the good ole' days, people would store their wood matches in a holder such as this. It would give a little class to the kitchen stove, or sitting room where gentlemen were allowed to smoke. Near the bottom on the backside of the holder is a striker that could be used to strike (light) up the matches. This item is in excellent condition with no chips, no cracks or repairs, measuring 4" tall x 3" long x 1 1/2" wide. The depth of the match holder is 1 3/4". This item would make a wonderful display, especially in a man-cave or a early kitchen setting or just a great addition to a collection. Thank you for visiting our shop.
