A vintage boot shaped brass match holder / striker (it could also be used for toothpicks, or as a desk weight or tidy) with integral mice detail, and enamelled shield shaped Clacton town emblem affixed to one side.
The mice on this particular striker are particularly well-defined (see photographs) which is very nice to see.
The boot has been cleaned but might benefit from further cleaning (depending on taste).
The boot measures just over 3in long toe to heel and stands just under 1.625in at the highest point (the top of the back of the uppermost mouse). Weighs just over 240g. Exact age unknown but believed to date from first paqt or middle of last century.
