you can tell what is made of yes. So what is unusual about it? What extra process was added to its manufacture?  Remember itís functional not artistic. We ruled out candles some time ago but there is a connection [^]

I think you're right Karen.  I think it's a matchstick holder.  I saw one on ebay.

Well done everyone I do love it so much when you get there. Yes this is a advertising (or merchandising) match holder.  As I told Neil itís made in England or London to be more precise. They are called James Green & Nephew. Isnít it amusing that they used the word Nephew. I bet there was a story in that. [^]
