This is an unmarked Bakelite container made from dark brown Bakelite with some red coloring in the outside layer. I am unsure of its original purpose or of its origin. It is a nice size container that could be used for any number of personal items. It reminds me of some other containers I have seen that were for hair care products like shampoo, which usually came as soap flakes. The bottom has a raised center which makes it nearly the perfect shape to contain an emergency doughnut ration. That is a joke, although, it actually looks like it would fit a donut nicely. It has a 1/4 turn lid. There is a small bubble inside the Bakelite, probably from the wood filler, this is common with a lot of Bakelite. It measures about 3 1/8" in diameter.
