Typically made in Japan in the 1940s and 50s, this unusual match holder consists of a human skull atop a book.  Made of bisque pottery and hand painted, the skull has an articulating nodding jaw.  The books were intended to use as a striker while the hole in the skull is where the matches are held.  This fun halloween novelty item would look great in a curio cabinet!
