Lovely antique flash powder igniter. You wind it up just like a wind-up toy, and when you pull the trigger a wheel spins against a flint, generating sparks that ignite a small pile of flash powder. Obviously used, but probably not for several decades. If anyone knows what the likely age of this device is, I'd love to know.
