Late Victorian Wedgewood Match Striker

Late Victorian Wedgewood Match Striker

SKU: RJ01341
£28.00Price

Friction matches came into being in the 19th century, after their more-dangerous cousins, the chemical match, failed to gain popular use.  Matches were ubiquitous, and were used for lighting candles, fires, ovens, and cigarettes etc.   Matches were typically kept in either portable vestas, or in match strikers, both of which had a ribbed or rough part for striking the match on.  

 

This pottery match striker is made by wedgewood, it has a striker t the base and is also marked.

 

The condition is very good with no chips or cracks.

 

Dimensions: 6cm high x 6cm diameter
