Spunks were used in 18th century households for transferring fire to the fireplace or to light a candle from a tinderbox or tinderlighter. Sparks were struck directly onto the tinder in the tinderbox & the sulfur match would be touched to the smouldering tinder to create a flame.
Be careful when making sulfur matches, the fumes can be most pungent, & if you use too much sulfur on the match it can drip fire until blown out.
