1950s matchbox labels

I came across these whilst ferretting around in my hard drive for stuff to put on my website. I bought them from some bloke on Ebay when I was a student in Bristol. The colours are so beautiful and the block colour look is something I adore. The typefaces too are wonderfully retro. I believe most of them are Czech, but it looks like there are some Dutch ones in the second image.

It's a mighty shame that I have absolutely no idea where I've put the damn things, huh? So for the moment I have to content myself with the scanned images. I think these would look fabulous in a frame...
