    Wasn't sure where to put this. I think it is a tooth pic case but am wondering about the material and an approx.. date. The wire and top piece tested as gold. IMG_1866.JPG IMG_1867.JPG IMG_1868.JPG IMG_1869.JPG
    Any help is appreciated.

    Looks like pressed horn to me, would guess late Georgian or thereabouts...

    Clean the hinge, and the box, and then use two-part epoxy glue to stick it back together. Originally, it would've been riveted, but then I dunno if you could do that without breaking the box.

    aviation. they may have a cut-off of an aluminium sheet for free, too.
    we had small ones on the ailerons etc.. you can clamp them easily with small pliers, NO HAMMER NEEDED.

    The shape is called navette after its resemblance to a weaving shuttle.

    But definitely for tooth picks and not something like snuff? Sorry; out of my purview as well.
