I got a box I guess would be for jewlry. It's got carved bone, or maybe ivory. 2 guys fighting on the top with the carved word mefaam, or meeaam. It may be an illustration of one guy yelling. Don't know what country it's from. It's a sturdy box and heavy, about a foot tall, felt-like lining. Did not see any other writing or label on it. The bone or ivory is in a round circle made from blocks and carving. On each drawer there are the bone or ivory carvings. That's all I know. Any help would be great.

    Are those staples holding the drawers together? Looks strange, no dovetails....Not trying to run it down but I've got issues with this piece.

    Reptile skin, oriental 'feel' and greek carvings, what a strange mix!
    I see MEEAAM, for whatever that's worth
