A patented VESTA HOLDER by MARBLE'S of Gladstone, Michigan. The centre tube unscrews for access with the advantage that you have a waterproof case for your vesta's or matches. I believe these were used by hunters and also by soldiers in the early 1900's -World War One etc. Measures 2 5/8" with a 7/8" diameter. Nickle plated metal.
