ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM...

Buddha match striker statue c.1866

An early and most likely unique, special commission Sterling silver match striker in the form of a smiling, seated Buddha, the head hinges open to reveal a void in which to put matches, the body resting on an hexagonal engine-turned plinth. Bearing marks for P & F Schafer, 27 Piccadilly (retailer), and the makers’ hallmarks of Thomas William Dee of London, 1866.

Thomas William Dee founded his own firm of silversmiths T.W. Dee in London in 1862, a few years after his father's death, and continued in his father’s and grandfather’s tradition of making high quality silver items for the great luxury goods houses of London’s West End.


Height overall: 5 inches (13 cms).
