Constructed from soldered, lap seam, sheet iron, this period tinder box fire starter is of classic period design measuring approximately 4 1/2 inches in diameter and stands about 1 13/16 from rim to rim with an applied candlestick holder and finger loop. Solid with good evidence of age and period use this box contains its period carbon residue under the original sheet iron damper with finger loop, period beeswax fragment, two flints (one of which is clearly is a discharged musket flint), and a period maker marked striker or steel. All is set off by the retention of a period candle stub. A must have 18th early 19th century utility, the tinder box fire starter required some skill, experience and effort to create a usable fire in a time when the open flame was essential to the giving of light, heat from the cold and fire for cooking. Quickly falling out of favor upon the advent of the common match, the tinder box all but disappeared with few examples to survive into today’s antique market. Those few original tinder boxes existing today seldom contain, as does this offering, the period content essential to creating fire. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
