A rare example of a 19th Century Bear Match Holder and "Go to Bed" with a muzzle on his face holding a post which has a hole on top for a match to be used as why it is called a "Go to Bed". Since there was no electricity back then, a wax coated match could be stored inside the bear via his head being hinged and hollow inside and lit and placed in the hole. When the match went out, it was time to "Go to Bed".
 
Measurements: 7cm high to the top of his post.
