Rare Edwardian Large Sterling Silver-Mounted Threaded Crystal Match Striker. Diameter 4 inches


The exterior of this striker is threaded, as one would expect, however, unlike any I have seen before, there are three circular openings equally spaced around the sides which access a large hollow smooth interior. The openings and the match container on top are banded with English silver, A. & J. Zimmerman, Birmingham 1899. The glass is in perfect condition. There is some rubbing to the silver marks.  It has the initals “A.J. N.”
