About this objectA miniature matchbox in two parts containing approximately 15 matches. One part consists of a top and sides with open ends. The other part is a tray, which is held firmly, but runs freely through the other part. The box is coloured yellow, black, red, blue and oatmeal. On the front is a picture of a full rigged ship. The sides are roughened to ignite the matches.
There is an identical empty matchbox in the collection, given by the same donor.
