TINDER BOX/CANDLE HOLDER 1770-1820 AND HOLDER

One of our favorite early lighting devices. This is an example of a tin drum Tinderbox complete with period striker, flint, and damping disc to extinguish the tinder and keep it dry. The flint and strikerare normally keep on top of the disc. Note the candle holder was applied to the lid with tabs and also note the design on the drum.(ADAR)
Dimensions: 31/4" Diameter, 33/4" High
List Price: $550
The hanger may not have been used as a holder for the tinder box, but it is period and we have used it to display a tinder box.
List Price: $25
