It has an original paper label inside that reads Little Colonels Chewing Gum MFD by U G Grandbois Co, Kalamazoo, Mich. One hole takes a penny, the other hole is too small for a coin, could have taken a token of some kind. In the metal design says The 4in1 and EHL, has an early art deco style. No key, tried a penny, turned fine, but no gum came out.
It is about 7" across the glass cylinder, and almost 16" tall not including the wood base. The black painted wood base has a hole that has been taped over, and there is light expected wear on the metal areas, did not detect any chips or cracks in the glass. A super rare piece to add to your collection!
