A neatly made round box, of heavy copper, highly polished. The lid fits the base snugly, and is easily removed. About 1" deep, and nearly 2-3/4" diameter. Most brands of modern smokeless tobacco "snuff" (i.e. Copenhagen or Skoal) will fit neatly within this box, but our flint & steel fire striker will not fit. It is a nice large box for carrying an extra supply of char-cloth or tinder. Well made, the snug lid fits the body and seals well, to keep the contents dry.
