PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE PURCHASE:
These match strikers are intended for use with "strike anywhere" matches. The bottom half of each match holder has been left unglazed to provide a rough surface for striking your match. Safety matches will not work. These type of matches will not ignite when striking on ceramic since clay does not contain phosphorus. Also, please be aware, just like when you strike a match on the box, it will leave a mark. If you are very particular with leaving marks on your match striker, another option would be to strike the match on the underside or simply use the box the matches came in.
DISCLAIMER: Please be aware that the quality of strike anywhere matches can be unreliable. We cannot be held responsible for the quality of your matches. We cannot guarantee your matches will work. These match strikers simply provide a rough surface to strike the match. An unglazed ceramic surface should be more than suitable to ignite a quality strike anywhere match. For best results, keep the exposed clay part dry and grease free.
Paulova ceramics are entirely handmade. Slight variations in glaze, size and surface texture are to be expected. If you are very particular about exact size, color, or perfection, we strongly urge you to contact us before placing an order.
