Keep track of your tiniest items with these pure brass boxes, inspired by Civil War era accessories. In the mid-19th century, frontiersmen and soldiers carried tiny brass boxes to store gun percussion caps, tobacco and other small items. The small size and secure friction fit lid of these brass boxes make them suitable for storing anything from seeds for your garden to nails in the workshop.
Over time, the pure brass will develop a patina unique to you. Many prefer the individual finish that occurs over time and with use. However, if you wish to prolong the sheen of the brass, clean the case after each use, as natural oils from your hands will hasten the development of patina. To fully restore the original brass finish, a brass or copper polish may be used.
