Pyrobilia – Fireworks Label Collectors

Fireworks were invented in China in the 1300’s and were mainly used in ancient rituals. Although the western world adopted the colorful bursting displays for their own celebrations, including on our own July 4th, manyChinese celebrations are also still punctuated by fireworks including the Chinese New Year celebration.  In fact, many of the fireworks that we still see today are manufactured in China.

The term pyrobilia is the hobby of collecting fireworks or anything associated with fireworks. There are thousands of people who collect all things related to fireworks; some collectors just collect the labels from old firecracker packages. Firecracker package labels can be very interesting and colorful as well as valuable. We have seen some vintage firecracker labels go on eBay for anywhere between $10 -$69.

The vintage firecracker paper label pictured on the left is from the 1930’s and depicts Tarzan on a tree branch with a knife and vine. This was a “registered brand of Li & Fung of Hong Kong.” It measures approximately 3” x 5.5” and sold at Hakes Americana and Collectibles Auctions of York, Pennsylvania for about $172 in 2007.
