Small Thing - Great Design

I love old advertising posters and tin plate signs and I prefer to light a candle with matches, not with a cigarette lighter. Can you imagine my surprise when I wanted to buy some matches and the shop owner gave me these? Aren't they beautiful?
OK, they obviously resemble a cigarette pack, so those of you who hate cigarettes or smokers, just skip this post. For the rest of you I'll even share a close-up:
I don't know whether these cigarettes ever came in a pack like this. It looks more like a reprint of an old, faded ad. But it makes a very nice matchbox. More of these, please!
