Edwardian Antique Match Holder Match Striker Top Hat Crested China 1900-1910s
This is a wonderful Edwardian era Crested China or Crested Ware match holder with match striker in the shape of a gentleman's top hat.
The china souvenir hat has the coat of arms in hand painted enamel paint for Perth, England and measures 1.5+ inches high by 2.75 inches long by 2 inches wide.
The hat was made 1890-1910 and is unmarked, so I don't know the maker. It looks like an Arcadian Ware piece which were often unmarked at this date.
The top hat match holder match striker is in excellent used vintage condition with no chips or cracks or gold wear.
A neat and useful piece. You hardly ever find them anymore.
