Match Striker

A match striker. Beyond a matchbook, who knew such a thing existed and could be transformed into a lovely decorative object such as this one. These baubles hold your matches and have a rough patch to strike a match on. I did some research and found that match strikers are highly collectable items.  And let me tell you, there are some really funny looking antique ones that can set you back upwards of $200. Apparently they were once common objects used at home and at work, but are now largely a thing of the past having been replaced by gas lighters. Nina Campbell has modernized the match striker with her hand blown glass collection. Pretty little things, aren't they?
