Rare Antique French Gilt Bronze Ormolu Match Striker C1900 For Sale
A rare French novelty match striker. It dates to c1890-1910. It has been made from gilded cast bronze in the form of a bag with unusual box base, possibly a form of doctors bag or travel bag. It has a steel striker to its base. It is in superb condition with the bronze being free from dings splits and repairs. I have not polished it just given it a wash in soapy water. It measures 3 inches (8.5cms) tall by 2.25 inches (5.6cms) by 1 inch (2.7cms) and weighs 268g. A rare eye-catching novelty example.
