Not sure if this is creamware? Majolica glaze... Mottled green, brown, pale blue. A two piece match holder, striker and cover. English 19th Century? Seen this type of thing but not many with cover. Anyone seen the likes before and know of maker/age? H: 92 mm. No makers marks. Thanks.

Yes, it's a smart little fella. When I bought it, the seller said it was a honey pot, threw me off the scent a while, but didn't make sense, but didn't see what it could be. I've trawled the net with infinite search words and can't find it. Thought it might be Dunmore, but don't think it is. Cheers!

Is this the one from a recent post that I suggested might be a string holder?

If, as it appears in the new photos, the hole in the lid goes right through rather than being a deep dimple then I still think that string holder is likely, especially as there seems to be no sharp ribbing anywhere on which to strike matches.

I do like it very much, the glaze is delightful, reminds me somewhat of Whieldon.

Sorry, I didn't see your replies when I posted this a while ago, as I lost track of my item... The hole appears to go all the way through but it actually doesn't. I've tried a needle through it and it is blocked. Maybe some sort of air hole for firing? It was suggested it might be a match striker in the earlier post, but I didn't see that either. I found this one (new pic). I do agree though, the striker on the holder (on base), does appear to be a bit blunt. Could this just be a slight fault in manufacture and merely a ribbed decoration as on the cover?? The plot thickens! ThanksMAJOLICA MATCH HOLDER, STRIKER AND COVER Match_10
