Found this box at a thrift store. It is made out of wood with possibly brass around it. The plating is not glued, it is nailed on. The metal is not magnetic. There are square with pictures of different things associated with India engraved in them, possibly by hand. Not sure what it was originally used for. It says "Air India" on the side. The interior is covered with velvet and there are very few wear marks. It was a giveaway to Air India customers in the 1980s and designed to hold cassette tapes.
