TCP members-

I purchased this item a few years back at a junk sale and don't have much of an idea of what it is. It's cast, measures almost 8 inches across and looks Japanese-y. The guy I got it from said it was from a cobbler's bench, to hold nails. I don't know of many Japanese cobblers using nails, but could it have been in a little tobacco/pipe kit (the kind with the box cabinet, and a little hibachi on top to hold charcoal)? There is an edge to the cup's rim which suggests maybe a domed lid came with it at some point. Right now, it holds keys.

 

 

All thoughts welcomed. Thanks

Doug
