Can someone help me identify this.
I found it in my Mother in Laws attic. Pretty rough condition.
There are two plungers one for dispensing something and one that is a cutter. There are two holes in the fron of the cutter.
I think it is a smoking stand that has a match dispenser.
or possibly a tobacco dispenser.
There is a brass tag that says:
Patent Pending
Anderson & Paterson
Thanks
pkaus

    What is the width inside the dispenser chamber? Does dispensed product fall into the drawer or come down in front of the mirror?
  2. pkaus, 1 year ago
    Inside the chamber is 2 1/4"
    The item would fall down the mirror
    Thanks for helping

    Are you in the U S?
  6. pkaus, 1 year ago
    Yes St Louis area
    I may have to take it to a smoke shop or antique store

    I wondered about your location as I had looked at the U S patents but came up short so it must not have been patented. I thought it could be for dispensing cigarettes, but it appears to be too narrow for that.

    That was my first thought too
    I think it is for dispensing wood matches
    And the cutter is for cutting a newly rolled cigarettes
    The drawer catches the cuts and then can be re-rolled or thrown away

    Did you find out what this is?
