I am not sure what this is or what time era it is. I think it is a flask of some kind. I know there is someone out there who knows what this is. All comments are welcome.

    My first guess is a powder flask -- must have had an attachment for pouring the powder out -- http://www.google.com/images?um=1&hl=en&rls=com.microsoft%3Aen-us%3AIE-SearchBox&rlz=1I7DKUS_en&tbs=isch%3A1&sa=1&q=powder+flask&btnG=Search&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=

    Seems pretty small for a powder flask. Maybe a handy place to keep snuff?

    Hm it looks like a holder of matches to me. The square patch on the lid, does it look like it has any strike marks?

    My first thought was snuff or tobacco also.
