    My mother-in-law gave me this little guy some years ago. She did not know what it was used for. It measures 6 inches long...paint is mostly gone. No marks. Thank you! DSC09351 (2).JPG

    I found a few online saying Schafer and Vater called the Long Legged Scotsman match holder.

    I don't know if that is correct or not.

    I'd say a Spill Vase or matches.

    I just found it are absolutely correct. It had very nice bright painted colors at one time, but this was "matches" :joyful: the one at the Schafer site exactly.
    Thank you!!
