This is a B-Stock listing. These match strikesare B-Stock because of imperfections. These imperfections could include: crooked/faded lines and/or text, decal (artwork) could be crooked, and/or other defects. These imperfections do not affect the functionality of the saucers.

This unique match strike (or pyrogène in French) is a reproduction of those found throughout late 19th and early 20th century Europe. At that time, it was common to see a match striker sitting on a bistro table or bar. The strikers served three purposes. First, the hollowed-out top was used to store matches. Secondly, its side or base (with its ribbed surface) was used to strike and ignite the match. And lastly, the piece served as an advertising venue. Many distilleries used these match strikes to promote their liquor, and were usually provided to the bar for free.

White-tip, or "strike anywhere," matches are strongly suggested for use and are for sale here. Regular household kitchen matches will not light, as the white-tip matches are needed. The strikers can also be used to hold a variety of items, such as toothpicks.

  • Measures 3.5" tall x 3.75" in diameter.
  • Includes approximately 25-30 white-tip "Strike Anywhere" matches.
  • Hand-painted accents.
  • Imported.

    Overall I was happy with B-stock strike. It had a very minor chip but overall was unnoticeable. However it states that it comes with matches, but mine were missing. Thankfully I had purchased matches so it was fine.

    This match strike and match holder looks great next to my other absinthe accessories. There was a minor scratch next to "cafe" -- not sure if this is why it was rated as B-stock -- but I was able to remove it with a cloth.
