It is this base that holds the wand for the striker, and the plynth would of contained the lighter fuel.The striking plate is situated on the base,with surrounding strike-marks showing original signs of use. All is inamazing condition, with just these strike marks and rubbings to theoctagonal base,the figure is free from any repairs or damage.
