A LITTLE HISTORY - DID YOU KNOW THAT? Intended for children, they also appeal to adults who have not lost their sense of imagination. Rumor has it that these figurines were often used in English pubs for striking matches to light pipes. Also for use in kitchens, these "strikers" were used to light the match to heat the stove. That is why the base of each is graded; for striking a match against.
