Rare Antique Royal Hotel Ornate Match Holder/Striker
From my personal collection, a rare ornate Victorian silver plate match holder/striker from the Royal Hotel in St. John, New Brunswick, Canada.
This beautiful piece would have been given to hotel guests as a souvenir. Can you imagine?
The piece has a lovely repousse design on front and back. It reads, "Compliments of Royal Hotel St. John N.B. Raymond & Doherty Proprietors."
It measures 2-3/4" by 1-1/2" and is 1/2" thick. Superb condition.
A very collectible piece from a bygone era!
