VINTAGE BAVARIAN PUG MATCH HOLDER ( Vintage Porcelain Pug Dog Match Holder ): This is an unusually well made Porcelain Pug Head Match Holder. You can see from my photos that the match container is a separately molded container extending down into the pug head and the scratch pad is down the back of the head. This nicely molded and decorated pug head is typical of what are called "Bavarian Pugs", despite the fact that it is marked "Austria" on the base. The Austrian Empire extended up to Bavaria, or Southern Germany - near Dresden and Meissen, Germany - prime porcelain country. Now the area is part of the Czech Republic. Condition: Excellent. No chips or cracks. Size: 2 1/4" high, 3" long, 2 1/4" wide.
