    It's a container of some sorts. It is about3 inches across, 1 inch deep. The lid is the only thing that has any markings. And I will up load more pics.

    You can add up to 4 photographs-- I would suggest you add a photograph that shows the entire object.

    Yes the third pic is a pic of the bottom of the piece. The engraved piece is the top. It is less than a 1 eight in thickness.

    The whole thing weighs about 4 oz. So its not very heavy. And I will post a pic of the whole thing now

    I find this a handsome and charming item. That said, I trust you will pardon me for observing that the engraving is strikingly 'naive'. The box itself looks well made, and its quality renders the naive engraving all the more remarkable. A mystery! Respectfully submitted, miKKo

    Thanks everyone, I'm still looking myself. I collect a lot of items. And this one is a puzzel to me
