Guaranteed to be antique and the paint is original. This neat figural match holder would make a great addition to any Ohio State Fair memorabilia or antique match holder collection!
Some light oxidation is on the head and legs. One leg looks like it has a small repair on it. Some mild paint wear is on the wings. No dents, dings or breaks. Overall in VERY GOOD condition. Please refer to the photos for the absolute best details.
