The legendary Hudson’s Bay Company was a major player during the North American fur trade era. By the mid-19th century, the company evolved into a mercantile business selling everything from furs to fine housewares. This oval brass tobacco box is a nicely made replica that was modeled after an original sold by the Hudson’s Bay Company. It is a great storage container for your tinder and char cloth. The lid fits and seals tightly. The box has a burning lens attached to the exterior of the lid.
