Manufacturer: Hall China
Date of match stand: 1950s – 1961
Notes: According to information found on a genealogy.com forum provided by Donna Duff Hauser, the daughter of owners Melvin and Evelyn Duff, Duff's was the first restaurant operated by the couple. Located in Winchester, VA, it was a predecessor of the well-known Duff's Rebel, also in Winchester, that had a Confederate theme.
The last date this particular piece could possibly have been produced was March 6, 1961, thanks to the penciled inscription on the back with that date, plus Harry & Mary!
The heavy black match stand is decorated with coin gold lines to accentuate the shape and the words DUFF'S and WINCHESTER VIRGINIA.
