Product description

Carlton Ware crested pottery match holder / striker - "Cirencester" crest
 
An antique / vintage (early 20th century) Carlton Ware (Wiltshaw and Robinson) crested pottery spherical match holder / striker, in off-white glaze with rough glazed exterior (for striking matches) with "Cirencester" (market town in Gloucestershire, England) crest to one side, measuring approximately 6cm (2.35in) in height and 7.5cm (2.95in) in diameter; the unglazed base bears the blue printed "W & R / STOKE ON TRENT / CARLTON WARE" crown and swallow stamp together with what appears to be a faint old pre-decimal price (1/9).
 
There is a knock to the rim of the well above the crest, with V-shaped crack approximately 2.1cm (0.85in) in overall length, together with age wear including scratching and abrasion (especially to the well and its surround) and slight marking; there are some minor imperfections in the glaze including tiny pockmarks and spot marks.
