Always in interesting motifs, these match holders or smoking stands are often the ultimate way to add variety and a conversation piece to your yellowware collection. The stately standing lion is well detailed as well as the grasses behind him. The grasses camouflage the round receptacles which would have held the pipes in the larger one and matches in the smaller. A small vertical grooved area on the back would have been used as the striker. Most likely European of origin, these smoking stands were certainly well designed to be able to incorporate all these needs in a graphically interesting piece. Animals are rare in yellow ware and this would be a wonderful way to add a lion to yours. Not only is the coloration a rich buttery yellow but it is also in pristine condition. Measuring 5" high and 8" from end to end, it is a medium-sized piece so the lion will certainly make his presence known.
