FACTS & HISTORY: Staffordshire English match striker advertising Apollinaris mineral water with a beautiful graphic font and glossy cobalt blue banding. From 1910- 1950 they were produced by 'W & W Co. in Burslem England' and were stamped with a crown and rope mark used by W. Wood & Co. from 1915 through 1932. Ours predates the mark so we estimate it’s age 1910-1915. With so many mass-produced reproductions circulating, it is becoming difficult to find a true period Apollinaris match striker. This was discovered by us at an Estate Sale in Maine in 2013, it has been part of our private collection since then.
