Salt? Snuff? Spittoon? Holder for some rare spice from the Spice Islands? Finger bowl? Hard to tell how big it is.
I have thought and thought about it, and I can't come up with anything reasonable. I was thinking that it might be something for storing dried herbs.
I think it is old, not something you can go and buy now? Spice crusher of somesort?
Yes, it is quite old - though probably not an antique. You could buy one like it if you knew where to go (it's a long way from Fleet). No it's not a thing for storing or grinding herbs or spices. Nor a spitoon, Hazel (You'd have to be pretty accurate to spit through that little hole in the lid!). Keep guessing...
A spice or pepper grinder from North Africa?
Does it hold insects?
No, it does not hold insects (not intentionally, anyway...)
Hmmm perhaps a salt pot
Is it a Bento Box? They are japanese lunchboxes
No, it's not a Bento box... Nice idea though!
