Other Interesting Points - This lovely solid and quite heavy Swan Match Holder would have sat upon the mantelpiece with matches within ready for ignite one's fire. This early English Brass is often referred to as being 'Cottage Brass' and has a more golden colour and weight to it than more recent brass. I have referenced it as being a 'Vesta'....as it is a Match Holder though the Swan does not feature a striker as the striking of the match was more often than not done on the hearth.
