This is a nice Mauchline Go-To-Bed--so called because, supposedly the cylinder would hold matches, and one would strike a match on the bottom, and put it in the opening, encased with ivory, on the top, and light his or her way to bed. One side of this piece has a scene of Yarmouth from the Britannia Pier, and the other side is the Wellington Pier, Yarmouth, Norfolk. This piece measures 1 and 7/8 inches tall and is 1 and 3/4 inches in diameter.
