Smoking isn’t as socially acceptable as it once was, but there are other uses for matches – and when you find one, you’ll be glad you had these French Allumettes to hand.

Take your pick from eight vintage French boxes, dating from between 1910 and 1950, each containing 100 long matches, with a sleeve that should catch the eye and inspire a few modern-day designers.

Each box costs £1.50.
