These lined boxes can be used for all types of standard sized cylinders. The boxes are 4¼ inches (108mm) internal length just like the original Edison, Columbia, and Pathe boxes.
Storing a cylinder in its original box is not always possible if the box is in poor condition or the cylinder has become separated from its box.
These boxes are made of similar materials as original cylinder boxes but are not archive quality containers. As with any lined box it is important to store the box and cylinder in a cool dry place so as to avoid the promotion of mould growth on the cylinder surface.
