Vintage Ceramic Advertising Match Holder Striker for Keens English Chop House
Vintage English advertising ceramic match striker and holder. Vintage 1930's, 1940's restaurant match strike made for Keens English chop house. This most likely dates from the 1920's- 1940's. Keens Chophouse opened independently in 1885 under the ownership of Albert Keen, by then a noted figure in the Herald Square Theatre District and is now known as Keens Steakhouse in New York .

This piece was part of a large collection purchased from a match strike and inkwell collector recently.
