Santa Match Holder

Blue 2B MarkYou are offerding on a very sweet Santa match holder made by Royal Bayreuth. This is fresh from the household sale of a woman who was an antique dealer for many years. She offer us up many times at sales in our area, so it was quite fun to go and purchase some of the things we missed along the way.This item is in mint condition with no chips, hairlines or repairs. You will see a few minor paint rubs, which are often found on Bayreuth pieces. The match holder is about 4.25 inches tall. The matches are stored in Santa's toy bag and there's a strike plate on the back side of the bag.We have the Royal Bayreuth reference book written by Douglas Congdon-Martin with Robert Bernstein published by Schiffer Books. There are two Santa items pictured, a creamer and an ash tray. We can't find mention of a match holder in the book or through Google, so we will assume it is a rare item. If there are any Royal Bayreuth collectors who are familiar with this item, please feel free to email and share what you know if you are so inclined.In any case, this is a charming piece that should appeal to both collectors of Royal Bayreuth and Santa Claus. Shipping will be via USPS Priority Mail. We will double box and insure the package for the flat rate of $10. Payment via PayPal only. If you are the winning buyer, we'd like to receive payment within five days of the end of the sale.
