Antique Gentiane Quina Bonal Matchstrike

Antique Gentiane Quina Bonal Matchstrike

$200.00

A handsome and clever find from the markets of France, this Antique Gentiane Quina Bonal Matchstrike once served as a promotional piece for use in bistros and cafes. 

Originally produced for Bonal, makers of a popular aperitif wine made by an infusion of gentian, cinchona (quinine) and renown herbs of the Grand Chartreuse mountains in a Mistelle base, Gentiane Quina has been a beloved beverage in France since 1865. Traditionally enjoyed neat or with a twist, the drink was popular in particular with sportsmen, and Bonal would eventually go on to be an early sponsor of the Tour de France. 

Light a match with ease and in true French fashion, by simply striking a strike-anywhere match along the unglazed ridged center. This practical find will serve you well and store your every match in elegant vintage style. A classic and special find much like the drink it is named after.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good antique condition. Measures 3 1/2" x 3 1/4"
