    haye its a wooden charge holder its made from bamboo very light with a carved shape top witch has some form of dubbin to keep it coverd I belive this is were thay caryed the charges for his musket but iam not 100% shoure if it was a riflemans i also thought that it might be an artillery gunners charges for setting of his cannons but iam no expert i would of thought the artillery gunners charges would be alot bigger.

    If any one can enlighten more on this that would be cool

    alfrie, i take it this item is Austrian as the Prussian army were using breech loading needle pin rifles, and as such did not need to carry charge holders. Can you take better photos, i would like to see more, super item and rare as combat equipment for this period is difficult to obtain.
