Pirulabrille, Military Glasses Case Filled with Drawing Charcoal

Regular price $25.00

I love the look of this old tin, which I believe is Hungarian, with the word literally translating to "pill glasses." (?) I did turn up one other tin like this, with a listing that says it held military glasses, which would be in keeping with the utiltarian look of it. I was happy to open it to find a bunch of old drawing charcoal inside--and somehow that blackest black inside the olive green tin with black sans serif font feels just right and resonant to me. 

5 7/16" x 2 1/4" x 1 1/8" and in good, used condition, with some scuffs and scrapes. Lid opens easily, closes tight and flush, and stays tightly shut. Charcoal is in usable condition.
