Default Wooden Snuff Cylinder with lid?

I found this wooden cylinder with lid and I thought it might be a snuff wooden cylinder. I really not sure. The cylinder with lid is 2 5/8" in length and 1" diameter. The lid is about 1/2" in diameter and the cyclinder is nearly 2 1/2" long. I hoped someone might know what this wooden cylinder would have held inside it if it is not snuff. Thank you for your assistance in this item.
Regards,
Rob

Exclamation Re: Wooden Snuff Cylinder with lid?

While retrieving items to be donated to my engine club, I ran across 2 of those neat containers. One had OLD fish hooks, the other small furniture nails. It must have been some kind of operation to thread the tops and cylinders, so the lids could seal them up tight!

When I was a kid, Junket rennet tablets used to come in wooden cylinders like that.
For those who don't know --
"Junket (company)
Junket is a company that made prepackaged powdered dessert mixes and ingredients for making various curdled, milk-based foods, such as rennet custard, ice cream and rennet tablets."
