A vintage wood and porcupine quill cylindrical tobacco or cigarette box which would nowadays be more use as a deskweight desk tidy or even a toothpick holder. It stands just under 4.25in high and measures about 3.25in in diameter at the outer rim (about 2.375in in diameter the inner aperture).
There are a few very minor dinks and scratches. There are a couple of hairline cracks in the lid (on the inside and on the side) but otherwise the box is structurally sound. The box would probably benefit from expert cleaning, particularly the upper part of the lid. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the middle of last century, or possibly a little later.
