    Vintage House in which Jennie was shot match holder. I received this from my Grandfather and wanted to show and tell the item. Still opens and closes nicely.

      Very nice! This is an celluloid type match holder.

      I'll bite! There is more to this than you are telling. "Jennie", "shot"? Come on, - give the explanation or you don't know?

      Interesting and strange that in my studies of CW history that I don't remember the making of this martyr.

      By the way, I haven't looked this up, but just the other day I realized what has to be the reason they call these "Vestas". Vesta was the Roman goddess who governed the home and hearth. Her temple had a sacred FLAME. Not to mention the Vestal Virgins. I felt dumb for not thinking of it before. I thought it was a brand name!

      WOW ! We have a jumbie on CW! De duppy, she walk and talk to us ! Wonder if this will boost our ratings ? Do we get rated ? Berated maybe so, B-rated. Ramblings of a landlocked sailor.
