Special very old BRYANT & MAY'S matchbox with Braided Cigar Lights inside


This matchbox is dated early 1900's or maybe earlier. According to the matchbox-labels.co.uk it is dated 1885.
According to matchboxlabelsuk.co.uk, these matches were used to light up cigars, and produced with the new method of braiding the stems, stopping the heads from falling off (with the first edition Cigar Lights, the heads would often fall off).
