This very unique, mid-century matchbox holder is embellished with a very detailed painting of a terrier dog. It is made of stainless steel, and while it shows some paint loss, along the top edge of the holder and light scratching, it is still perhaps a "one-of-a-kind" vintage piece, and certainly a fun one to add to your collectible canine collection. Although it's original purpose seems to be a match or matchbox holder, with the bowl-shaped base designed to hold used matches, it can easily be re-purposed to hold toothpicks, stamps and other desk accessories. We even tried it as a pen holder, and it works for that purpose too! It is 2 1/2" tall and the circular base has a circumference of 3 3/4". It comes with the pair of vintage "Kent" matchboxes with matches.
