What if Miss Redhead was a real girl?
Redheads is an iconic Australian brand of matches originally manufactured in Richmond, Victoria by Bryant and May but now manufactured in Sweden by Swedish Match. It is the top-selling brand in the country.
Matches were first produced by Bryant & May in Australia in 1909. The Redhead name applies to the red striking heads of the matches which were the introduced to Australia in 1946. The logo on the matchbox depicted the head and shoulder of a redheaded woman and has had four major updates since that time with a number of special issues also produced.
Dickheads were a brand of matches released by Australian businessman Dick Smith in 1999.
The name is a pun on the Redheads brand of matches.
The matches were made in Villawood, New South Wales by Steric Trading Pty Ltd, from local and imported materials. While the matchsticks and matchheads were made overseas, local packaging allowed the product to be labelled “Australian made”. The matches were sold in boxes of 20, “DICKHEADS 20”, and 25 “DICKHEADS 25”.
The back of the box reads:
“We would have to be complete dickheads to let most of our famous Australian brands be taken over by foreign companies. Brands such as Vegemite, Aeroplane Jelly, Arnott’s, Speedo and Redhead Matches are in overseas hands. This means the profit and wealth created goes overseas and robs our children and grandchildren of a future. A protest from Dick Smith Foods. As Australian as you can get.”
The brand is no longer sold in stores, making the packets already sold rarities.(care of Wikipedia)
