match strikers

This probably an unnecessary necessary but I lucked out and got a good deal on a striker on ebay. I never win things so this is nothing short of astounding to me.

If you don't have the patience to deal with auctions here are some really pretty strikers. JB Silverware Striker for $185.

The JB Silverware Silver & Glass Match Striker for $155

There are a whole host of Jonathan Adler ones for around $45, the Devil and the pipe are probably my two picks although there's a boom box too.


The best deal, and a favorite was this one from Ruby Lane seller Susan Kiff. If the ebay one had not been such a good deal, this would have been my pick at only $35 plus shipping.

Hi Ann, I think you got the best of the lot. I love glass strikers, and yours has the best shape, and those Murano bubbles on the lower half. There are some fun figural ones too, but yours has classic elegance.

Welcome back, Ann! Hope you'll post some photos from your holiday. I need one of those good looking white strikers. Cheers, Loi

Thanks Jim, I had second thoughts about if I should have purchased the silver rim but it was rather inexpensive and I had been looking for a long while, maybe two years off and on. I am glad you like it best!

Loi, I took a bunch! That is my project this week :)
