    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 --

      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.
