Antique Worthington Match Holder

Antique Worthington Match Holder

$150.00

From a discerning, life-long collector, we are pleased to offer this handsome and extremely rare match holder from England. Produced as a promotional piece for Worthington Brewery, the match holder is an impressive find to be sure. 

The weighty ceramic orb features a central well to hold matches and is decorated on one side with Worthington's official crest and on the other side with the trademarked White Shield logo and the "Worthington's In Bottle" advertisement. Around the top rim is the Worthington's In Bottle text in a simple font.

Prized by collectors and increasingly difficult to find, this match holder is sure to light up your kitchen or bar with its storied presence.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In fair vintage condition with crazing, staining, numerous repairs and other obvious signs of a life well-lived in a busy British pub! 3.5" x 3".

Learn More About Worthington

Perhaps the truest British survivor of the India Pale Ale tradition is Worthington White Shield. It recalls the era when British brewers made pale ales hoppy enough to withstand the journey round the Horn to the Indian Empire (hops work as a preservative, as well as imparting their herbal bouquet and dryness).

The Worthington brewery, founded in the 1700s, was acquired in 1927 by Bass, its neighbor in the English beer capital town of Burton-upon-Trent. The Worthington brewery closed in 1965, but its name and famous beer survived as a brand under the Bass Brewery umbrella.
