Wooden Match Box Stand by Yair Emanuel
The matchbox holder is decorated with a large pomegranate on a blue background on each side, a small pomegranate on the stem, and other small pomegranates circling the base of the holder.
What a great way to beautify your candle lighting Mitzvah. The top is hand painted wood with metal clips on the side to hold the matchbook in place. Space is left so that you can light your matches on the side of the box with ease. It will certainly help make your Shabbat candles and their surrounding a beautiful and honored part of the home.
Size: 4.3" X 2.3" X 1.7"
