|Tin match box.|
Listed under phosphorus because it was designed to contain potentially dangerous old matches. From the seller:
This very old tin box from R.Bell & Co., London contained "Not Under 140 Matches" according to the embossed legend on the front. Top says Bell established in 1832 and this box is certainly at least 100 years old. In worn but sound condition.
