I don't really know what they were, these brass fasteners of McGill's, but they poured a ton of energy into describing their product. People today wouldn't bother reading all of the content splashed about on this little brass container. But people had nothing better to do in the late 19th century! Everything else was forbidden. Now you can store things in it that modern folk use. And shake your head ruefully at their primitive advertising skills. We sealed the interior bottom, polished it and cleaned all the crud off of it, and believe me, there was plenty. Lo and behold, a whole paragraph emerged about fasteners and patents. Fascinating - not. But very cool looking, and isn't that the whole point? Measures 2 1/4 inches tall and 1 7/8 inches in diameter.
