Saloon label

A label pasted on the side of a pillbox, usually in two pieces: one for the removable top part and one for the bottom part containing the matches. Sometimes the top of a pillbox needs to be turned in register to the bottom to create the overall design.  See pillbox label for a circular label on the top of a cylindrical box.

Why were they called saloon labels?  Let us know if you know?
