This brass cylindrical vesta or “Go To Bed” is marked on the top ’50 Patent Wax Vestas Warranted’. The matches would be stored and kept dry inside and easily retrieved so that one could be struck on the bottom surface of the cylinder. It would then be placed in the indentation on the lid to provide just enough flame for one to light their candle to “go to bed”! Height 2.20 ins (5.6cm), diameter 0.90 ins (2.3cm). Weight 24 grams. This item can be seen in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 76.
