Perfect Match

Push the human/fire relationship forward with this lovely, yet practical, apothecary match bottle.

Matches made in India; all other components and packaging made in the USA. Includes 120 four-inch matches.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Poetry Match Striker:

      I needed a place to keep matches and a strong striker. This fit the bill! I don't love the fact that it has the quote but it's pretty subtle.

        Bought 2. One for my sister and one for myself! It's the perfect gift to complement the candle I got her for her birthday.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Customer Service rocks. I bought 2 and 1 arrived shattered- Called customer service and they sent out a new one immediately. Thank you!!

          We put it in our bathroom near some candles we light frequently and it is a beautiful decor piece and functional too. The poetry is beautiful and I love the typewriter style font on the piece.
