Light a spark with this bottle full of extra-long 4" black and white candle matches!
The tall, round glass bottle contains about 80 over-sized, 4" long wooden matches with black stems and white tips. These long-burn candle matches are 4" long to prevent your fingers from burning when lighting tall candles or cigars. A convenient striker strip is incorporated into a simple, signature label on one side. You can hide the label or feature it when you display your bottle, your choice, but it's always there when you need to light a match. The bottle closes with a silver, metal, water-tight lid. Take your matches anywhere, or keep them on your mantle looking pretty! A party in a bottle.
Studio Portmanteau is happily based out of Jessica's home studio in Oregon's gorgeous Rogue Valley. Each product sold in her shop is a one-of-a-kind creation designed and made by her in the Pacific Northwest. Most of her items are hand-pressed with metal dies on a vintage foil stamper that is the mainstay of the studio.
A passion for the simple things in life - stargazing, beachcombing, gardening, reading, cooking, the great outdoors - plus a fascination with tiny things and an obsession with all things golden led to the idea behind this design studio specializing in matchboxes, and more recently delving into a broader range of other thoughtful objects for the home and special occasions. As a lover of all things vintage, Jessica sees the matchbox itself as a tiny little piece of a bygone era that still resonates with us today and reminds us to sit down, light a candle, and spend the evening catching up with friends or devouring a good book. She loves bringing materials to life with her unique perspective as a trained designer, intrepid explorer, and avid maker.
