Ethereal Matches, invented in 1817, consisted of a piece of paper coated with a compound of phosphorous that ignited when exposed to air. The paper was vacuum-sealed in a glass tube called the "match," which was ignited when the tube was smashed [Ref: Museum of Everyday Life website http://museumofeverydaylife.org/exhibitions-collections/current-exhibitions/history-of-the-match]
