A very rare early Victorian ‘Go-To-Bed’ box, the vesta compartment with original hinged blued steel striker, and a retractable flap for the candle. The elegant and tactile box quite plain with moulded detail to the lid and lovely original fire-gilt interior. Marked on the lid, inside and on the folding section. This is a very early date for a Go-To-Bed vesta and candle combination, the earliest example I have seen.
