Cornish Wreck matchboxes

The Cornish Wreck labels were stuck onto matchboxes in the First, Second and Third Series. The Fourth Series was comprised of twelve skillets. The matchboxes were packed into dozen packets and then into gross packets for shipping to the retailer. Packet labels were produced for dozen and gross packets. Click here for a list of all the Wreck labels.

Many examples of the matchboxes can be found with Private Advert labels stuck on the reverse, which would have been used for publicity purposes. Some examples of these Private Advert labels will be shown in the future.
