Object Description

This is a most unusual item. In sterling silver, this novelty match striker is in the form of a head with 2 eyes serrated to strike the matches on, the nose is a cigar rest, the mouth is an ashtray and the circular font at the top is to contain the matches (use your imagination to see the matches as a tuft of hair at the top!). With a registered design number Rd519008. Height 7 cms. Weight 5 troy ounces. London 1903.

Object Condition

Good condition with no damage. Stamped with a full set of English silver hallmarks (rubbed) and part marked on the base. There is a small silver mark on top which is a possible restoration.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
