Here is a metal container that I had for several years and have been trying to find out it's purpose ever since.
It is made of heavy tin and has a brass screw cap. It has this weird inverted tapered base (see pic 2 & 3) and this strange notch in the base and side wall. There is a wire ring to hang it up. the cup's dimensions are approx. 4" tall and 4" in dia. Notice the crazy little mouse hole on the perimeter?
It's that inverted tapered base that has me puzzled. Help me out here, fellow collectors. .....hotairfan
