    I am going to show in this post and in the next some beautiful mutch holders and strikers. Most of them, like this in crystal and silver, were purchased at the flea market. This one was bought to a boy that is not longer there. He was studying architecture perhaps his name is Lisandro. It was not chip but Sergio sometimes buys to encourage new sellers. This match holder and striker was oned by his great father. You can see the hall marks, they are very worn and difficult to see with clarity but they are English. The hole in the center was to put the matches that were lighten in the rough crystal surface. On Ruby Lane we found one similar, now it is not longer and the description said “Sadly, the hall-mark on this piece has been too enthusiastically polished. About the only thing that can be recognized with any certainty is that it bears the Head of Victoria. Our guesstimates puts it at around 1880. Nevertheless its a nice piece being 3 1/2" in diameter around its "waist" and 2 1/2" high.” Without doubt, a brother of our.
