The World of Match Holders
(Click on each image to learn more.)
These other websites also feature antique/collectible match holders. Some are for just for show, while others are serious antique dealers with items for sale.
These retailers have also created modern match holders for kitchen and/or fireplace matches. Many are in the style of antiques.
River Junction Trade Co.
Of course, handmade items are my favorite:
Ayumi Horie Pottery has a great collection of handmade match striker dishes. Very cool.
Here's great find on Etsy - Stone Matchbox Holder houses a box of kitchen matches.
Also, fellow pyros, did you know there's a name for those of us who collect match stuff? When you go to a fancy restaurant or stay at a resort hotel, do you pick up a matchbook or box of matches and put it in your pocket to use later? Even people who don't smoke or use matches will often pick up a matchbook as a souvenir, especially if the matchbook has a lovely or intriguing cover or a logo of the place it came from. If you are one of the many people who enjoy collecting matchbook-related items, then you are a phillumenist. You see there? PHILLUMENIST. We've been diagnosed and can start our own support group!
