Go to bed match box solid bronze Warwickshire bear

Go to bed match box solid bronze Warwickshire bear Antique Bronze Animals Bronze   Victorian English %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
A fantastic Victorian novelty go to bed match box, in solid patinated bronze in the form of the Warwickshire bear and staff.

The heavy bronze bear has lovely patina to him and small striking cold glass eyes, he is chained to the staff as depicted in the original coat of arms for Warwickshire.

The Warwickshire coat of arms of bear and staff can be traced back to around the 14th century, in medieval legends it is said to have derived from the name of the Earl in the days of King Arthur being Arthgal which was linked to the Welsh word Artos (bear) the staff was said to have been introduced due to another Earl who killed a giant with the branch of a tree, traditionally it is the symbol of courage.

The underside of the piece is covered with green felt to protect the surface it stands on, his head opens up to store the matches.

It is in good antique condition with all original fixtures, there is a small amount of putty in the top of the head which has been later added maybe to hold in the eyes.
