Here is a beautiful Antique late 19th century English Cordite Clarkson Ammunition case w/ coat of arms. These containers were cartridge cases and were widely used by the British fleet to convey cartridges from the magazines to the guns where they remained until required for use. These cases offered protection against premature detonation in the event of a "blow back" from the gun.
Measures approx. 16.6"H x 9"W
