From the other side of the pond, a matchbox label from the 50's, simple and nice. The mushrooms are probably fly mushrooms, or what they might be called in English. In Swedish: Flugsvamp. Toxic and hallucinogenic.

What a nice matchbox cover, but strange it has no text at all... :) Flugsvamp is fly agaric in American English, and Amanita is the genus. I love the white feet and red hats of this toxic mushroom. Nice find, EH!
