A couple of recent finds for me are these two antique cast iron match holders. They're labeled in the Collectible Match Holders book as "Lady's Boot With Scalloped Top And Buttons On The Side". I've seen a lot of these, but this pair are the first I've seen with the faux marble base. There are also many similar to this without the striker plate. These are both equipped with the striker plates. Though there is a bit of paint loss on each, they're still in fantastic condition. These are from the early 1900's. They each measure 5 1/4" tall, 4 1/2" long and 3" wide.
Thank you all very much for stopping in for a look!!
