This is an excellent excavated Parrott pattern Civil War cannon shell fuse holder. This screwed down into the shell and would have held the paper time fuse. The paper time fuse would have acted like a candlewick that burned down to set off the explosion to break apart the cannon shell. This is the style pictured on page #76 of the Civil War Artillery Fuse book by Jones. It measures 1.42 inches in overall length. This will make a superb display beside your Parrott rifled cannon shell.
