I won this in an online auction a couple of weeks ago. It's a vintage bronze rabbit match holder. I'm told this is from the late 1800's, but not completely sure of that, though I know match holders were quite common in that period of time. You would have used the side of his basket as the striking point for the matches. It only measures 5 1/4" tall, is nicely detailed and has a wonderful patina.. There are no markings on this to indicate the maker. So, I do not know who the maker of this little match holder was. I ended up getting this for $15, but I've seen them sell for $$$.
Thanks to all for stopping in for a look!!
