this a long overdue mystery object.

Where and when do  you  think  it  was made, and for  precisely what  purpose. No prizes and very  little kudos  awarded.

This is a tinder lighter; dating from around 1740/1750, It was very probably made in England. It has had the top jaw screw repalaced, but is otherwise in good original condition.
