The Gewgaw, Matchstick Dispenser



Need a matchstick? This little device will conveniently pick up and deliver whenever the need arises.

Most people use these for toothpicks, but the original US Patent states it was for matchsticks - the kind you could strike anywhere to ignite.

Of course, for me, one wasn't enough - I have three. Each one is slightly different, but they're all woodpeckers.

I wish I remembered, but it was years ago. Thanks for the comment anyway...

My great grandfather used to have one of these. I was always happy to fetch him a toothpick.
