Samples of Smokeless Powder. The New Explosives Company Ltd.

The New Explosives Company.

Occasionally when trawling through antique shops you come across some interesting item related to your hobby. Collecting guns is one thing but finding the bits and pieces which were made for the sport is always nice. These were salesman samples of the then newly developed smokeless powders made and marketed by The New Explosives Company of London. The four vials of powder come in a velvet lined japanned tin, all very nice!
