Description


This exceptional antique George V sterling silver and alabaster match striker has a globular form.


The surface of the alabaster* body has a carved textured finish which composes a match striker.


The body of this antique match striker incorporates four vertical inset lapis lazuli panels.


The upper portion of this antique match striker retains the original, plain hallmarked sterling silver mount.


* Alabaster is a mineral / soft rock and has been used through history for carving decorative pieces and artefacts. Between gemmologist and archaeologists there is a difference of opinion on the composition of the mineral, from a fine-grained gypsum to a type of calcite; the calcite variation has been traditionally labelled 'onyx-marble' despite being geologically inaccurate.
