Rare and early wooden box, tinderbox 17th century or earlier
January 21, 2019
I bought it from Bernard Gulley in Portobello over 20 years ago. I was told it was a tinderbox, and that the darkened wood in the small compartment was where the combustion took place. I cant verify this but it sounds plausible. It measures 8 inches wide by 2 inches high by 1.75 inches deep. Its in wonderful original continued and a lovely thing to own. We are downsizing and I m saying farewell to some old friends. I paid a lot for it 20 years ago, Im afraid.
