Penny Match Holders

These are vary rare pieces, apparently made at the time that matches were common for lighting pipes and cigars. I'm aware of only three or four. In 1998, two examples like the purple on the left sold at auction for $900 and $1,400. In 2009, another in purple sold for $1,600 and in 2012 one sold for $1,000. In 2014, another brought 1,500.

The marigold example on the right sold in 2003 for $400.

I have no idea who made either style although I suspect Imperial made that on the left.
