This unusual match holder was found at a country estate sale in Elkhorn, Wisconsin. Harking back to the early 1960s, this solid steel match holder depicts the results of a recent hunt, with a rabbit and pheasant hanging from opposite sides of a floral basket. The bottom of the basket has two openings where wooden matches were once stored. At the top is a large circle from which the holder can hang from a sturdy hook or nail.
This decorative match holder is in great vintage condition. The piece has a delightful patina that has come from age and usage, giving the match holder a very rustic feel.
This steel match holder would do very well as a decorative piece in any toolshed, barn, patio or even the proverbial man cave. For those of you who collect metal home products, this Mid-Century match holder would make for a great find for your collection.
