NIGHT LIGHTS & ENVELOPE SEALERS: European Metal Match Holders
BY NEIL SHAPIRO & DAGNY KERNER


In the 1800s Central European foundries were producing some of the finest commercial metal work in the Western world.
 
Two of the finest were the Hanau foundry of E.G. Zimmermann and the Vienna, Austria foundry of Joseph Glanz. Among their varied products were iron and bronze figural match holders that both companies sold throughout Europe and North America. While the match holders shared a similar function their designs were decidedly different.
 
This book discusses the history of these products and illustrates many of the known figural match holders made by the Zimmermann and Glanz foundries.
