Parisian café advertisement match striker and keeper. The strikers were given to Bistros, cafes and pub’s to advertise and promote the sale of liquor.

It was common to see a match striker sitting on a french bistro table or bar. The strikers served three purposes. First, the hollowed-out top was used to store matches. Secondly, its side or base (with its ribbed surface) was used to strike and ignite the match. And lastly, the piece served as an advertising venue. Many distilleries used these match strikes to promote their liquor, and were usually provided to the bar for free.

White tip strike anywhere matches must be used with these.  Ordinary matches will not strike.
