Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This pouch was used for carrying artillery shells during times of war. It's diameter would fit snug into the cannon and the wider outer rim would act as a stopper helping to insert the shell into the cannon in brisk movement. This design was used since the 18th century and this particular pouch type was used in war ships during WW1 and WW2. It would work well as an umbrella stand or for storing items.
