    Thank you for your interest.
    We have the grenades Ruggieri and Lamarre. It's not these grenades.


    For identification there was, cardboard topped with white wool thread. All is soaked in tar with sawdust outdoors.

    Just a thought, could it have looked that way as a disguise for horse pooh? The Imperial War Museum and Natural History Museum, both in London, have collections of irregular warfare exhibits. It might be worth you emailing them with your question.

    My thought was that this might be along the lines of something thrown into a coal tender of a steam engine. So it was shoveled into the boiler furnace with coal.
