Match wrapper

A printed paper used to wrap a number of matches.  Such labels are very old and rare.  Most match wrappers contained matches that did not need the special striking surface on a matchbox such as sulphur matches.  Some match wrappers enclosed a piece of striking surface with the matches.  Use the full term match wrapper (rather than just wrapper) to avoid confusion with matchbox wrapperdozen wrapper; or gross wrapper.
