Fabulous antique English hallmarked sterling silver & threaded glass 'ball' shaped match holder, 1917 Birmingham marks!  These have always been quite collectable, the threaded sides of the thick glass globe are supposed to double as a match striker surface.  Wonderful little decorative accent with a somewhat utilitarian purpose :).  I haven't been able to find reference to the silversmith mark but the date mark is for 1917.

Very good condition.  If you look very closely, you can see a few tiny nips to the glass threads in places but no other notable damage.  See pictures for measurements.
