Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver and glass match striker has a cylindrical, rounded form.


The surface of the glass body is embellished with a serrated texture which composes a match striker.


The body incorporates three moulded glass handles in the tyg* form; with the use of the three handles, this piece could easily be transferred around a group.


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


* A tyg is a large English mug/drinking vessel with three or more handles. The mug was made to be shared, and handed round between several drinkers.
