What awesome fireworks! This kind of firework is called cake. With a fuse that sets off a variety of effects in succession, a cake is essentially many Roman candles fused together. Cakes vary widely in size, though some can contain over shots.
Wow this is incredibly good condition-"mary queen of scots death mask" does anyone know the provenance of this thing? (I can't believe that Mary was so young, so pretty, and above all so peaceful at death as this, but who knows?
