    First pouch feels like it contains pills/pellets/balls or whatever. They feel about 6mm diameter. and a lot of them....

    The other pouch has a cylindrical item.  (one end of which feels like a squeezeable rubber bulb so I am guessing maybe a dropper or pipette associate with identification kit?
    Thanks Mike

    Contents of these two sealed packets is now known to me.  

    Just acquired a more or less complete Chemical Identification kit.

    Contents of first pouch are spare" bottles" like these.  A "borrle is a lot smaller than I imagined it would be!

    Thanks for all your help gents,  I am now sure what is in those two mystery packets, so they can remain sealed!  It would be a shame to open them after probably 50 years of airtight storage!

    Only just occured to me what the symbol on the refil case actually is?   I guess the symbol is a pair or crossed retorts?

    Had I known what was in it, I'd have taken it better, but okay. You can't want everything in life Wink
