Vintage Brass Figural Match Striker & Holder - Mining Gnome/Dwarf with Gem
Regular price $249.99
This piece is quite unique. It has a bowl around the center, possible intended use was for an ashtray. In the center you will find a gnome/dwarf standing over a "gem"(cut glass) and a mining bucket(match storage). All placed in front of the reeded floor to be used as the match striker. The bowl/striker area is supported by a round base, setting it about an inch off the surface. The entire piece looks to be made of brass, and the bottom seems to be weighted.
