Here's a decorative way to store matches near your hearth or wood stove so you'll always have a match handy and a striking surface close at hand!
Whenever we visit our favorite spots along Maine's rugged coast, we hand select just a few of these smooth granite stones. Created by a combination glacial activity and the relentless pounding of the ocean, they are generally round and smooth though each is truly unique. If you have specific size/shape needs, please contact me and I'll see what I can do.
The hole is 7/8" diameter and about 1" to 1-1/8" deep. They hold up to 40 of the 2-1/4" long wooden matches.
Please be aware that if you want to strike your matches on the stone, you must use the "Strike Anywhere" kind of wooden matches. We test every stone and will never ship a stone that has failed to ignite a Strike Anywhere match. Matches are not included but they can be purchased in hardware stores, Amazon and other online retailers. If you're giving our Stone Match Holder as a gift, we recommend you include 'Strike Anywhere' matches so your recipient can put it to immediate use.
*** Because Strike Anywhere Matches are classified for shipping purposes as hazardous materials, we can not include matches. Price shown is for a single Stone Match Holder. ***
