Rare Oriental ceramic spill vase formed as an oxen

Spills are made of tightly rolled paper tapers or very thin wood sticks and usually kept on the mantelpiece in a spill vase. Spills were used to transfer fire from the fireplace to candles, lamps, a pipe or a cigar.

Commercial matches, which first surfaced in England during the 1820s, were a relatively expensive commodity until the late 19th century, and a spill was, therefore, a more cost-effective solution.
