Victorian Tartanware "Go To Bed" - SOLD OUT

Designed mainly as memorabilia during the mid to late 1800's - Tartanware was all the rage among the Victorian Scottish tourist set.  Ranging from simple pill boxes to elaborate woodwork - I have collected some of my favourite pieces just to bring a wee bit of Scottish history to your home. 

The "go-to-bed" was traditionally used to store and then mount one lit match - just enough light to get your through your darkened bedroom and safely into bed.
