Very beautiful and rare Russian gunpowder holder, used in artillery in the 17th century.
The highly detailed holder with repousse copper decoration has two men's heads, two eagles and two chains.
The top itself had a defect, hence the cork so that it is attached to the gunpowder holder, see pictures.
