Dicharry French Match Strike in Gift Box

Add to basket
This unique match strike (or pyrogène in French) is a reproduction of those found throughout late 19th and early 20th century Europe. At that time, it was common to see a match striker sitting on a bistro table or bar. The strikers served three purposes. First, the top cylindrical container was used to hold matches. Secondly, the ribbed surface on its side (or base) was used to strike and ignite the match. And lastly, the piece served as an advertising venue. Many companies used items like these to promote their wares, and were usually provided to the bar for free. Now you can have this delightful little piece of bar advertising culture in your home as they make a great accompaniment to decorative and scented candles.

White-tip or "strike anywhere" matches are suggested for use as regular household kitchen matches will not light. The strikers can also be used to hold a variety of items, such as toothpicks.

Made of china with hand-painted lines and accents. Comes in a Gift Box.

Measures 6cm tall x 10cm in diameter.

Matches not included.
