BACK IN STOCK 10 DEC

Originally seen in the 18th Century, commonly found in bars & cafes throughout France.  Placed on bars as a match strike, they were also a form of advertising, in this case from Liqueur Malette a Cahors to promote their products. 

Now reproduced again,  they make a lovely decorative item, and a stylish way to light your candles, or hold toothpicks in the top.

Hand-painted and finished.

Can only be used with light anywhere matches.  Matches not included.

Measures 8.6 cm high x 8.8 cm in diameter.
