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. [^]
