Evoke memories of the Paris of dreams, la vie en rose. Visiting a bar or bistro you would have seen these match strikers, placed for their customers.
Originally the cup at the top would have been filled with matches, but it could be used now for little blooms or a candle.
This is a particularly attractive example, as it has a delightful pink ridged area and gold highlights.
It advertised crême de cassis, used in kir royale, with other available flavours written around the base to tempt the customers!
In good condition with just a few signs of its age and use it stands 10cm or 4" high and is 12cm, 4.5" wide at the base
