My dad got these matchbox holders in Scotland many years ago. The first one is made of copper from the ship Foudroyant in 1896. Height 55mm 2 1/8 inches and weight 40g. The other 2 are sterling silver and slightly smaller at 1.5 inches. The third and fourth are the front and back of the same matchbox holder. It is from The Cornish Match Company. The picture on the third one is of the Old Cornish Mine and the fourth picture is of The Buccaneer Inn, Gunnislake England.
I am not a collector but wanted to share pictures of these unique antiques.
