Coal Bucket Match Striker It was common for 19th c. manufacturers to promote their companies by offering advertising premiums and novelties with their names imprinted upon the goods. Such is the case with this delightful cast iron wall mount wooden match holder. Strike anywhere matches upon the roughened surface. (Note the 3-digit phone number!)
Here we have a lovely pair of completely matching, hand painted English table lamps. The style of both the fonts and the bases suggest they date to circa 1930. The bright, hand painted floral motifs run all the way around the fonts, as does the scrolling black border between the white and caramel coloured backgrounds. They certainly would have held pride of place in the home of their original owners.
