$100 · Conta Boehme Match-Holder

Conta Boehme match-holder, circa 1870. The match safe is shaped like a young boy playing a violin. (Conta Boehme of Germany was actually the earliest, largest and most successful producer of "fairings" -- because they were sold at fairs -- until the onset of WWI.) The striking surface for the matches is on the back of the chimney. The figure is made out of porcelain and is beautifully painted. It is 4 ½ inches tall by 2 ½ inches wide. The mark for Conta Boehme is impressed on the bottom with the numerals 4231.
